The Montreal-based duo Bibi Club, comprising Adèle Trottier-Rivard and Nicolas Basque of Plants and Animals, recently unveiled their new single and video “Shloshlo.” This release marks the final sneak peek of their upcoming album, Feu de garde*, set to debut this Friday (May 10th) via Secret City Records. The track features vibrant, captivating synths that envelop Trottier-Rivard’s smooth vocals, as she delivers lyrics in her native French about “confidence, strength, acceptance of fate, and joy.” The duo describes “Shloshlo” as a reflection on the complexities of parenthood and the resilience and power derived from it. The accompanying video highlights Trottier-Rivard with her and Basque’s son Noé. Pre-orders for *Feu de garde* are currently available.

“Shloshlo” follows tracks like “Parc de Beauvoir,” “L’île aux bleuets,” and “Le feu,” which have garnered accolades from sources such as Brooklyn Vegan and Exclaim!. The album has received significant acclaim, featuring in conversations and reviews from outlets like Talkhouse and MOJO. Produced with the expertise of Ali Chant and mastered by Matt Colton, the album also includes vocal contributions from artists like Helena Deland. *Feu de garde* stands out as a compelling collection of French pop/rock music.

The name Bibi Club pays homage to the home discotheque where Trottier-Rivard and Basque entertain friends and family, reflecting the spirit of their gatherings. Their debut album, *Le soleil et la mer*, made the 2023 Polaris Music Prize Long List and was praised by BBC6 Music among others.

Throughout *Feu de garde*, Trottier-Rivard revisits core values such as courage and sisterhood, shaped by her time in Montreal’s first all-female scout group, Les Guides. These experiences are woven into the album, which draws on themes of community, the nuances of parenthood, mortality, and strength. The album resonates as a vibrant tribute to life’s intersecting journeys and shared moments.
