La Faute Explores Love vs Obsession on New Single “Watercolours”

A hidden gem from the frozen heart of Toronto, ON, La Faute is art school dropout and Sony Music Publishing artist Peggy Messing’s dark, dreamy solo project. A visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter originally from Winnipeg, MB, she explores themes of surface vs. depth, longing, betrayal, mourning and desire.

On the heels of critically acclaimed title track Blue Girl Nice Dayfrom her forthcoming debut album of the same name, La Faute unveils another haunting single. “Watercolours” teeters between a feeling of longing and a little bit of darkness. Is this song about love or an unhealthy, unrequited obsession? 

Hear and watch the entrancing track:

The video for “Watercolours weaves between fantasy and reality. Messing has become increasingly interested in filmmaking, art-directing and shooting music videos for each song herself, inspired by French new wave and film noir aesthetics.
