Monday February 15, 2021, the students of the Saint-Joseph high school in Lamballe (Côtes-d´Armor) discussed with Xavier Dollo, a science fiction writer, born in Guingamp.

Sécheresse is a song of love and lack. The clip directed by Carole Thibaud was shot in 16mm film, giving it a singular aesthetic.
“Sécheresse”, comes from the 1st album ofA warm aesthetic (Figures Libres Records) which brings together Amélie Grosselin, Claire Grupallo, Astrid Radigue and Faustine Seilman, four female artists (members of Fordamage, Mermonte…).
Their repertoire? Old or contemporary poems, questioning love, nature, the search for freedom, which they appreciate or which they write, then which they sing in four voices. "We transcribe the poetry on a rock base which deviates a little trance, pop music and even classical" entrusted us Astrid Seilman. To accompany them, a guitar and drums, but also more exotic instruments.
Sécheresse is a song of love and lack. The clip shows desert landscapes that pass by, like a wandering, a musical road movie.
The clip was directed by Carole Thibaud, shot in 16mm color film, a particular aesthetic with a grainy and warm image “which allows the nostalgia and poetry of images to emerge” explains the director.
