Sometimes People Suck, But This Dreamy Pop Song Is Here For You Mathilde Corbeil / Aléatoire

Aléatoire is French for "random," but the only chaos Charles-Alain Roy's electronic pop conjures is dreamy dissociation. On "Immune," a collaboration with Toronto's Alina Libkind, Aléatoire weaves a crushing set of circumstances into a warm and blissful light at the end of the tunnel. Libkind described the origin of the song's deeply personal lyrics over email:

'Immune' came into existence after a disastrous experience in my life when everything went wrong. Someone I relied on turned out to be real dick, and everything just seemed to be falling apart. I cried all day next day. And the day after I wrote 'Immune.' It’s about learning to treat every problem as a lesson and an opportunity to become better and grow.
