What a beautiful portrait Laughing With The Raindrops has painted with Afro-Caribbean infused tonalities, image evoking lyrics, and variant instrumentation that just flows with balanced harmonies, free vocals, octaves, and scales. You can be sad, happy, or could be feeling ambivalent towards something in life, but I guarantee, Laughing With The Raindrops has the song to adjust that emotion[…]
Two of my all-time favourite song writers, Bernard Lavilliers and Donald Fagen have had a love child: it’s [Virginie]! My favourite track is Hide Away, but they’re all fab, and the arrangements are so luscious.

I love it when music goes places! And when these places are unexpected and awesome like on this track from Virginie Lacour-Puiboube’s debut album with her band “Laughing with the Raindrops”.
It really is a fabulous piece of work…you should be very proud of it 🙂 The songs are beautifully written, the performances immaculate and classy and the production is rich, polished yet wonderfully organic!
