Pauline Andrès – “Hoping For The Best At The Springwater Supper Club” @ Apple Music.
by Walter Price
The latest cinematic work from wandering singer-songwriter Pauline Andrès takes plays straight out of Steve Buscemi’s ‘Trees Lounge’ and its characters’ entwined lives or, perhaps, Keyser Söze’s playbook. A Tuesday afternoon in a dive bar, local yocels, forgettable conversations, and cigarettes. Lots of cigarettes…and the writing is on the wall. Literally, in this case. Just as Söze weaved his tale, so does Andrès in this dark and authentic ode to the comforts of day drinking at the neighborhood watering hole.
This track, its film and Andrès’perpetual search for the Americana dream should pay off, as this single will no doubt be a top contender for many Best of Year lists.
