Taking influence from the likes of Lana Del Rey to Billy Holiday and Shannon &
The Clams, to create a retro futurist sound, sonically soft, yet emotionally intense.
2018 has seen the release of Fay Lamour’s (formerly known as ArsenLuna) Fay Lamour is a solo singer/songwriter/pianist from Cape Town, South Africa.

Debut EP: "Lunatic", which received a favourable review on Texxandthecity.com, as well
as the second single being featured on a Now Now Just Now playlist.
In February 2018, she embarked on a 24 date nationwide tour supporting The
Medicine Dolls; performing at notable venues such as Mercury Live, Rumours Rock
City and Railways Cafe.

Throughout June/July Fay Lamour embarked on a second tour, performing a
number of dates on the garden route, including the renowned Grahamstown Arts
In August 2018 Fay Lamour released her second EP: “Bleu”, followed by the third
EP, titled: “It Might As Well Be Spring” in September.


Only seven songs are available to hear, revealed in blocks of three roughly half a year apart plus one song surfacing just over a month ago, each timestamp being of different staging, held together by an impressively expressive vocal and mood setting pianoforte.

The most recent set, under the collective name of Bleu, surfaced on the 13th and resonates of theatrical setting with the songs taking on the demeanour of both off-stage whisper and expansive back of house resonance.

Charne Cathleen Vermeulen in the guise of ArsenLuna is a musician I look forward to hearing more of in short order possessing both a completely absorbing voice as well as finely tuned song writing ability.


The beauty (and danger) of a platform like Soundcloud, is the endless spiral of profiles you click through, suddenly stumbling upon music that grabs you but with no idea how you got there. That’s how I found this EP, tagged as “Dark Jazz” it all ambient haunting vocals, melancholic piano and low slung drum rhythms. I think you should give it a try.


Fay Lamour was in studio on the #MonateFelaBreakfast this morning for #TheDrop of her new track, It May as Well Be Spring.This is a track off the Cape artists third EP this year with another being released in January.
