A 21-year old voluptuous redhead pretending to be a dominatrix – ooh la la. Luce Brunet won tv-talenthunt Nouvelle Star last year, and none other then (Philippe Katerine) and Mathieu Boogaerts contributed songs for her debut album, Premiere Phalange (free translation: ‘dipping one toe in the water’). On which she tries on various characters – the dominatrix in La Fessée, the niece (a touching ode to her grandmother in La symphonie d’Alzheimer), the illegitimate daughter of Catherine Ringer (in Western Spaghetti), seductress (in Je m’fume) and queen of the mussels (La reine des moules). Her voice is good, versatile and she likes to goof around. The album has a few weak songs, but Luce is definitely one to watch.
