Thalerg With Awesome New Music
“James, who are you?”, the new single of Thalerg
But who are we? Who is Thalerg?
THALERG is a songwriter born in Lyon (France) at the end of the 60´s with a passion for music from an early age. In his ears? Lots of classical music but also English pop, from The Cure to U2 via Depeche Mode, Radio Head, David Bowie, The Beatles, The Queen or, even later, American Motown music.
THALERG started classical piano at the age of 9 and started composing music very early. Around the age of 24, although contacted by a record company interested in his songs “Jetable” (« Disposable ») and “No Noces” (No wedding), he made the decision to choose another path away from music after studying political science.
However, he never gives up music and continues to compose songs.
When he sings in French, he is inspired by the greats of French song: Gainsbourg, Bashung, Polnareff… There follow titles where he performs his own lyrics: “Manifs”, “Val-D’isère”, “Time” or more recently “Péguy Disco”. Sometimes he calls on other lyricists: “L’avion” (the plane) or “Laissez-passer” (the pass) for examples.
But THALERG decided towards the end of the 2010s to no longer sing his songs himself (he is not a singer but a composer).
He devotes himself to a new exercise: to remain the main member of the THALERG project while gravitating to external collaborations.
Thalerg also begins to write in English especially with the rhythms of Mowtown that make him vibrate or orchestral compositions for which he begins to collaborate with performers in different countries. The result? It is in this context that he conceives the “Thalerg Collaborative Project”
In 2022, THALERG returns with a title more “Dance” than ever: “We Are Them (Dance Version)”. Taking up the classic codes of R’n’B and female voices of the 90s, THALERG takes a groovy turn with this single!
The human condition, exorcising the ills of our society by bringing a touch of entertainment through universal themes, is THALERG’s credo.
THE SINGLE “James, who are you?”
In his new single in collaboration with a New York female singer session (who is the singer?), he had fun and played with the codes. He uses the codes of the James Bond film credits in an entirely original song. The lyrics of the song play on identity (James is not JAMES) as the song, in mirror, is not a James Bond’s credit but a song composed by Thalerg with the codes of James Bond credit. And who are we?
Musically, Thalerg enjoyed composing an orchestral song that could welcome a warm and sensual voice! But where finds the good singer? On a platform! Our time allows this type of collaboration and for Thalerg, what a great time!
