Revelation of new guard Quebec rap, LaF (pronounced "la-èf") is a group of 6 Montrealers who met in CEGEP. Having first gained experience on stage, the sextet is recognized for their electrifying performances. The band also won the renowned Les Francouvertes showcase competition in 2018.
Greeted with unanimous critical acclaim, their first album Citadelle, released on the 7ième Ciel label, offers alternative rap combined with soul, jazz and pop sounds. The result is a hybrid style that is very meticulous and accessible. The pieces are mostly melodic with a melancholy atmosphere, a characteristic sound for the three rappers. Their emotional lyrics bear witness to their broad range of influences, ranging from Quebec indie rock to European rap.
