Charlotte Gainsbourg has always been surrounded by the very best. The French singer and actress made her debut at the age of 12, with her father Serge, on the highly controversial ‘Lemon Incest’ (1984). She made her first solo record two years later and after that she focused on film. Not until 2006 did Gainsbourg truly make her musical entrance with ‘5:55’. Cool electro pop with lyrics by Jarvis Cocker (Pulp) and music by Air. 500,000 copies were sold in France. On her latest album, she pays tribute to her father (d. 1991) and half-sister Kate Berry (d. 2013). ‘Rest’ (2017) presents melancholy and rage in equal measure and counts Paul McCartney and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk) among its guests. Charlotte’s restraint is in sharp contrast to the drive of her celebrated father. However, she is just as poetic and inventive.
