La Faute is Haunted and Haunting in New Single/Video “The Crown”

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.

Inspired by a dream she had about a loved one who has passed, Messing gave thought to memories and ghosts, and how maybe they are the same thing. With her third single, “The Crown”—from debut album Blue Girl Nice Day, out May 26th—Messing has turned to using found footage from the cult classic film Carnival of Souls to illustrate the notions of a haunting, deja-vu and memory, keeping the same black and white aesthetic as previous music videos.
