Montreal’s Foxtrott is the working name of experimental indie-electronic pop singer/songwriter and producer Marie-Hélène L. Delorme. A native of Montreal, Delorme initially studied violin and piano in her youth. Later, influenced by an eclectic mix of reggae, hip-hop, and electronic music, she began making her own remixes; self-releasing under the name MHMHMH. Eventually, Delorme transferred her skills to playing and writing her own songs as Foxtrott. Her debut EP, Shields, featuring mixing by Damian Taylor (Björk, the Killers, Arcade Fire), drew favorable attention, and helped garner her more high-profile live shows in Canada and the U.K. In 2015, Foxtrott returned with her full-length studio album, A Taller Us, featuring the songs “Driven” and “Shaky Hands.”
