Montreal-based indie pop singer-songwriter Coeur de Pirate has released a new video for “I Don’t Want To Break Your Heart ”. Backed by reverb-drenched percussion and a sinewy but instantly hooky synth line, Coeur de Pirate remains softly, but fiercely, defiant in the face of love. “I Don’t Want To Break Your Heart ” is a thoughtful reflection on the dying embers of a relationship that once burned bright. Her ethereal and uniquely textured vocals run in dramatic counterpoint to a syncopated rap bridge courtesy of rising hip-hop sensation Allan Kingdom (Kanye West’s close collaborator). Yet in spite of heartbreak, this is the sound of someone looking bravely forward, refusing to live in what might have been.
Watch the beautifully cinematic music video below.
