In tune with Montreal’s eclectic music scene, Caracol is an artist who walks a singular path. Her upcoming album « Symbolism" is the sum of all her past musical experiences: her beginnings as a percussionist and back-up singer in reggae bands, her work as a sound engineer in film music, and more recently, her presence in the songwriting community and pop music writing camps, where she has collaborated with some of the best "beatmakers" and writers from around the world.

Always cultivating her uniqueness, Caracol stands out with her particular vocal tone, her catchy melodies and the daring way in which she uses rhythmic vocal patterns to create original arrangements. This particular blend of electro & organic sounds has given rise to her signature sound, where indie & alternative pop meet modular synths and tribal percussion instruments.

The "Symbolism" adventure begins with an encounter with producer Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms for Peace) during a creative trip to Los Angeles. After he fell in love with her demos, he decided to work with her. They went on to record 12 songs where Caracol reached a new height in authenticity and artistic expression. She then continued the exploration at her headquarters of Studio de l’Est, with her long time allies Seb Ruban & Toast Dawg, two of Montreal’s most talented producers.

As a teenager, always on the hunt for thrill, Caracol travelled the world as a semi-professional snowboarding athlete. Today, the self-taught artist keeps walking off the beaten paths as she tours around the world, in search of intense human experiences and artistic collaborations of all kinds. Transformation, love, ecstasy, wisdom, rebellion and conflict are among the themes that inspire her in her quest. Along the way, she performs a true introspection to come out in full possession of her art.

More than just a musical project, "Symbolism" has also allowed a fruitful collaboration with multidisciplinary artists The Doodys and artistic director Fred Caron in creating a peculiar universe touching upon various artistic and spiritual currents, while revealing the true nature of Caracol.
