Charlotte Adigéry Shares Music Video for “Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you)”

First Release from Soulwax’s label Deewee’s Debut Compilation

FOUNDATIONS Out in Full on May 7th

Last month Caribbean-Belgian artist Charlotte Adigéry returned with the first new music since releasing her critically acclaimed 2019 breakout debut EP Zandoli“Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you)” is about both isolation and connection. A beautiful statement of life in this strangest of eras, its fractured disco production and soul-baring lyrics, conceived and created by Adigery with partner Bolis Pupul in lockdown, speak of the intimacy and vulnerability of confinement. Today, Adigéry shares the music video directed by Alice Kunisue.



Charlotte says: “The video is about being confined thus confronted to the way we live. The cruel irony of having the privilege of standing still, questioning and observing my life in all safety while others are fighting for theirs. On the other hand, the video is about trying to stay sane while feeling that the walls are closing in on you. Embracing boredom and finding joy in the little things in life.”

Alice adds: “When I listened to Charlotte’s song and what it meant for her and Bolis, I wanted the video to visually encapsulate that feeling of being stuck inside and confronted to our deeper selves while paradoxically sensing the chaos going on in the outside world without being able to do anything about it. Choosing to film an apartment room from one single angle was a way to reflect that narrowness of thought that we all experienced, but also a constraint that allowed us to explore and develop visual ideas within a narrow system, in a way having to think only inside the box, which artistically was a fun challenge.”

“Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you)” features on Foundations, the first compilation album to be released on DEEWEE – the label from Grammy-nominated artists David & Stephen Dewaele AKA Soulwax/2manydjs. 27 tracks including 3 brand new exclusive works are united by a breadth of imagination, a love of hands-on artistry, produced and mixed by the Dewaele brothers themselves.
