Set Feux (a.k.a. Toronto based musician, Diana Planche) blends dreamy, sometimes bittersweet, nostalgic pop with lush vocal harmonies, ​ambient synths, guitars and sax on her debut self titled album, ‘Set Feux’, which is due for release on 19th April 2024.

Planche spent her formative years singing in church choirs and performing in community theatre productions. After finishing her studies in ​classical music at Queen’s University, she began writing her own songs, and eventually received an OAC and F.A.C.T.O.R grant to produce ​her first album released in 2009. In 2010, she joined indie rock band, The Paint Movement (Nevado Music) as a singer/keyboard

player, and in 2011 released their self-titled album produced by Dave Newfeld (Super Furry Animals, Broken Social Scene). The Paint ​Movement toured extensively over Canada opening for bands like Yukon Blonde, Zeus and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. In 2015, Planche ​toured Europe with Toronto singer songwriter, Barzin. Upon returning from the European tour, Planche began working on new material with ​long time collaborator, Kevin Kralik (wearenotwhoweare, Mass Paves) and her husband, Barzin (Toronto based singer/songwriter) for what ​would become, ‘Set Feux’.

The album took over 5 years to complete, recorded in Toronto and Hamilton. The songs explore love, passion, loneliness and the ​overwhelming desire to unravel the mystery of one’s self. “There’s a multiplicity that exists in us all, sometimes I feel unknown to myself and ​I’m searching for the world to reflect who I am back”, says Planche. “On songs like, ‘Young and Lonely’ and ‘Say it Again’, I was remembering ​the loneliness I felt in my childhood and the close spiritual connection I felt that brought me comfort and there’s a part of me that’s still ​longing to recapture some of that. On other songs, like ’Jumbotron’ and ‘Let Them Stare’, I’m exploring what it would feel like to be completely ​carefree and confident, to showcase one’s authentic self, no touch ups, no edits, just unfiltered and genuine”, she further reveals.

Musically, the songs reflect diverse influences, ranging from R ‘n’ B/soul to the pop/folk genres that

Planche has been inspired by throughout her life. Her influences range from Debussy to Dusty

Springfield, Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, Lauryn Hill, Imogen Heap, Wilco, Feist and Solange.

But whilst Planche allows all of these influences to come forth on the album, she maintains her

own distinct identity and voice as an artist, honouring the journey she’s taken to get here.

The album was mixed by Howie Beck at his studio in Toronto. Howie is a Canadian musician, mixer and

producer. He has been nominated for three Juno Awards in Canada on three occasions for Adult

Alternative Album, Engineer of the Year and Producer of the Year (2017). He has produced and/ or mixed

albums for The Weather Station, Hannah Georgas, Dragonette, Charlotte Day Wilson and Sarah Harmer.

The album was mastered by Joao Carvalho, a grammy nominated mastering engineer, who has worked

on albums by some of Canada’s finest artists such as KD Lang, Tanya Tagaq, Carly Rae Jepsen and

Charlotte Day Wilson to name a few.
