Agatha LaFaye has just dropped her beautiful new single ‘Diamond Bright’, an ethereal eccentric gem. Coming off the EP “Jupiter’s Mantrap” which is released on April 25th comes this gloriously grand new track. LaFaye hailing from Toronto, has mixed in old school elegant pop with modern production, leaving you enthralled. When you listen to this track you immediately get Lana Del Rey vibes coming at you. It’s like you’re listening to Del Rey’s ‘Ride’ or ‘Blue Jeans’ but in slow motion. It’s so seductive yet sophisticated, all from an artist who is unsigned. That won’t be the case for very long we’re sure.

Enjoy! - Blushing Panda

Agatha defines the sound of her music as ‘Menstrual Pop’

Jupiter's Mantrap - sodwee.comLaFaye was born and raised in Niagara Falls in Canada. She graduated Hihgh School and put every penny she earned had working into a piggy bank to pursue her musical ambitions a step further.

Fast forward to her twenties, Agatha LaFaye outgrew her hometown of Niagara Falls and spontaneously headed to Toronto for a broader take on arts and and culture. Fuelling her creativity even more to the point where she’s finally self-releasing the results in an EP in the hope to get noticed. And boy she has.

About Jupiter’s Mantrap by Agatha :

The concept of “Jupiter’s Mantrap” was conceived during a very depressing and bitterly long winter. I moved to Toronto in July 2013 and within the coming months, I began production on a very special project that is as-of-now still very top-secret. As the months of song production went by, I became frustrated and restless working a minimum wage job and not doing much of anything music-related. I am happiest when working on a project and that’s when I decided that I needed to start writing new music and find a fresh inspiration.

Agatha LaFaye is an artist that is truly not afraid to stand out. 

Born and raised an only child in the tourist city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, she spent a lot of her youth alone with her imagination and detached from the opinion of others. Since finding a passion for music and MTV at age nine, she knew that one day she would become a celebrated performer. During her teens, she focused solely on improving her songwriting abilities and style, while working a tourist job to save money for the future. 
At 20, she grew tired of singing songs to posters of Madonna and Tori Amos and spontaneously jumped on a bus heading to Toronto. Since arriving, the city has inspired her creativity and artistic development to greater heights. ​While taking time to figure out her next step, she continued to write songs that have helped define her personal direction and musical mission, many of which LaFaye is currently performing at live shows around Toronto and some which can be found online. 

One thing that LaFaye feels predominately attached to in her work is relationships, the dynamic between men and women, and her feminine perspective. She labels her music "Menstrual Pop" which she defines as "pop music that channels the female spirit."

The handful of songs LaFaye wrote since moving to Toronto inspired the singer's first project, a digitally self-released EP titled "Jupiter's Mantrap" that was recorded at 6 Nassau Studios in the famous Kensington Market with producer Dave MacKinnon (a cozy studio where big names such as Duran Duran and Austra have previously passed through).​ 

​The 4-track pop EP featuring an obscure, experimental-industrial opening intro clearly defines Agatha as a powerful and creative vocalist and songwriter, who is equipped with a pair of brass balls and a fearless attitude towards her artistic endeavors.

Edgy, fearless and creative, LaFaye is already a fascinating musical personality. 
That personality comes through clearly on "Jupiter's Mantrap." The EP is an excellent introduction to Agatha's music and lets her listeners know exactly what she's all about. 

During the past three months, Agatha's eccentric style and performances have scored her plenty of noteworthy gigs in the Toronto area, including being added as an opener for highly influential Canadian artists such as Gord Deppe (of The Spoons) (July 10th) and Carole Pope of Rough Trade (August 15th), performing at the historical venue The Opera House (July 4th). She has also recently had the opportunity to compete as one of ten artists chosen artists on Season 1 of the new online series Sessions X One Shot., as well as having a 2-song session recorded by BRBR. Followers can anticipate those videos in the coming months!

For a young artist just getting started, Agatha has already reached an impressive level of creativity, independence, and proven her always growing appetite for success! Agatha has many tricks up her sleeve, so keep watching to see the rest of her story unfold!
