"If I'm a creative person, it's mostly because of David Lynch."
Knowing that Munya, a.k.a. Josianne Boivin, is a superfan of the Twin Peaks creator helps place her music in a time and a place. Yes, it's electro-pop, but it's also wistful, with a certain pathos and even a dose of mystery.
Munya, Boivin's first full-length LP, began taking shape in the form of North Hatley, the first in a trilogy of EPs later rounded out by Delmano and Blue Pine (named after Twin Peaks' Blue Pine Mountains). The Saguenay, Quebec-based artist sang, produced and performed almost all the instruments on the album, and created all the artwork.
Watch as Munya performs songs from her debut album in CBC's Studio 211.
