VIDEO: Estere ‘L’oiseau dans l’etoile’ – Aston Rd Session

Written by on December 4, 2014


Aston Rd is proud to release the final of the Aston Rd Sessions 2014 featuring the inimitable Estère with a new song ‘L’oiseau dans l’etoile’ performed in French.

Filmed and recorded in front of a live audience Estère and her trusty companion Lola (mpc) play out ‘L’oiseau dans l’etoile’ which means ‘the bird up in the stars’.  The song is about the idea of there being a benevolent spirit (in the form of a bird) out there who is able to rectify a lot of what is wrong with the world and bring back equilibrium to the environment.

“L’oiseau dans l’etoile was my first endeavour to write in my fathers language- french! It actually came from a jam I was having with two friends, suddenly I was singing this line in French- “L’oiseau dans l’etoile voler voler voler” I really liked it so decided to work on a beat for it with Lola- es voila!” says Estère.

Estère is currently touring in the UK and Europe before returning to New Zealand to play a hearty series of summer festivals and will release her album in Europe with new Parisian taste-maker label Prospect in 2015.

Aston Rd Sessions will feature on Air New Zealand International flights between Dec 2014 and Feb 2015 and is available on the music and television channels.
