INSONDABLES

Insondables (unfathomable) is a song from Mylène Farmer’s tenth studio album, Interstellaires released on 6 November 2015



The lyrics to Insondables were written by Mylène Farmer. Music composed by Martin Kierszenbaum and Mylène Farmer. The lyrics live up the song’s title perfectly…It is as vague and unfathomable as they can get…more questions than answers, more speculations then real understating of her inspirations. Gala magazine has found that the song is inspired by the famous Hollywood movie “Ghost” with Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore. I personally love the movie but I I have not found any confirmation about that from Mylene herself. So all I will say – maybe…

For me although the song is an “orphan” (never been sang live, never promoted anyhow and beyond the popularized MF masterpieces) perhaps because of that its even more dear to my heart. It feels like Mylene as i would know her (melancholic, fascinated and tariffed by time, losses of the loved ones and death)


On October 28, 2015 at Midnight, a surprise online publication on legal download and streaming platforms of a second single (after Stolen Car) from the album Interstellaires.

This is the title Insondables which has a specific cover with an unpublished photo of Mylène by Ralph Wenig.


On October 28, 2015 YouTube channel MylèneFarmerVevo (make a bookmark of it in your web browser if you haven’t yet)
uploaded of the clip for the song Insondables directed by Eve Ramboz and Annie Dautane particularly rich in references to the universe and the career of Mylène.

Insondables can be considered a promotional single for the Interstellaires album which was released on November 6, 2015 (after the first single extracted from Stolen Car with Sting, on radio and available digitally since August 28). The song was not sent to the radios. No physical promotional or commercial support.

This video contains many nods to Mylène’s career, to her life but also to artists that she probably particularly likes.
We remember that the scene images of Timeless 2013 already included such little winks, such as drawings of Mylène hidden in the backdrop of À l’ombre .

References or nods to Mylène’s career The eye from the introduction to Entre les Morts du Tour 2009 Necklace from the photo of the ‘


album Interstellaires

I


The importance of horses in Mylène’s life and career, for example the clips Libertine, Pourvu qu’elles soient douces or Je te dis tout.


A reminder of the stairs of the castle of Millemont for the photo sessions with Dominique Isserman in 2004 and with Bruno Aveillan in 2011


Necklace of the Mylenium Tour but also the cage of the cover of the album Innamoramento or the clip Fuck them all but also the dove of the clips Optimistique-moi or also Si j’avais au moins…
This photo is reminding that of the photo of the cover of the single Q.I


We also find the necklace of the Mylenium Tour in this shot of the video in the tree


There even a reminder of Mylène’s fall on the steps of the Elysée Palace on March 2, 2010 while going to have a dinner with Russian president Dmitriy Medvedev (wow – Mylene has courage to laugh at herself!) But seriously , something is wrong with those stairs as she wasn’t the only one tripped there that evening.


In this same image reference to the painting of Géricault Le radeau de la méduse which we know was a source of inspiration for the clip Les mots


A picture of Mylene’s Stolen Car clip with Sting on the newspaper on the chair on the left


A picture of Liloup – Mylène’s dog and the skeletons of the Tour 2009


Possible reference also to the corsets of the dancers of the Tour 2009 and to Russia.


Reference to spider and for Mylène obviously to the song Alice or the video clip C’est une belle journée


The little word of the car of the clip Stolen Car and perhaps to the Mylene’s photoshoot with a nude male model by Catherine Cabrol?


Big red “M” from JE TE DIS TOUT.


Reference to these photos by Hervé Lewis for the Mylenium Tour program


The blue-eyed doll possibly hints to the photo by Hervé Lewis for the poster of the Timeless 2013 tour, to the doll of the photos of the album Point de Suture and the clip Comme j’ai mal


Mylène’s hands on Ralph Wenig’s photo from 2015 (session for the album Interstellar)


The book Fragile by Mylène and Sylvie Lancrenon


The cross of the backdrop of the song Stitch of the Tour 2009 concerts


The cross of the concerts Before the shadow… at Bercy that we found on the program of the concerts


Possibly a reference to the title Ave Maria ?

And I am sure there are more references – please comment below if you find the ones I didn’t. Like these:

Could it be L’ÂME-STRAM-GRAM ?

This techniques of the hidden clues was once again developed in the into for the L’Ultime Creation by Tres Cool – beautifully developed!



Second teaser of the album unveiled on the net after Stolen car, this fifth track, which begins with a metronome gimmick, or perhaps a tick-tock (Mylene’s favorite theme), evokes the separation, the loss of the other, the absence of a a loved one who sometimes invades everyday life and feeds regrets…
The lyrics live up the song’s title perfectly…It is as vague and unfathomable as they can get…more questions than answers, more speculations then real understating of her inspirations.

Karen Acampora Nimereala

With this title, Mylène proves her ability to sing on the breath, a vocal feat that she now masters – thanks to her vocal coach Karen Acampora Nimereala (who also happened to be Sting’s coach along of many famous pop stars).

A song promotion exclusively limited to the internet. And not a wonder since Mylene was recovering after a fractured leg and didn’t appear on public much.

” Mylène Farmer seems to have laid down her arms, to have freed herself from artifices by opting for simpler arrangements like on Insondables, where she evokes the loss of the loved one. ” ( La Voix du Nord – 11/07/2015)

“We find 100% farmerian hits Insondables” (Femina version – 11/22/2015)

“This American adventure is sometimes moody with sad Darkening, the bland title concept. ” avoir-alire.com – 06/11/2015

lyrics with translation


Plus rien
N'enchante le monde
Insondables
Sont les flots
Et las, contemple les ombres
Il lui dit à demi-mot

Qu'il l'aime, qu'il l'adore
Qu'il l'aime
Mais le chaos du corps
A ses raisons, a ses remords

Et le ciel est
Sans nuage
Et les jours
Semblent longs
A perdu son point d'ancrage
Il rentre dans sa maison

Il l'aime, il l'adore
Il l'aime encore

Plus rien
N'enchante le monde
Insondables
Sont les vents
Las de contempler les ombres
Un silence assourdissant

Il l'aime, il l'adore
Il l'aime
Mais le chaos du corps
A ses raisons, a ses remords

Et le ciel est
Sans nuages
Et les jours
Semblent longs
Perdu le coeur d'une femme
Et la mort porte son nom

Il l'aime et il l'adore
Il l'aime
Il saignera encore
Jusqu'à sa mort
Nothing more
Enchant the world
Unfathomable
Are the waves
And weary, contemplates the shadows
He tells her in half a whisper

That he loves her, that he adores her
That he loves her
But the chaos of the body
Has its reasons, has its remorse

And the sky is
Without clouds
And the days
Seem long
Has lost his anchor
He returns to his home

He loves her, he adores her
He still loves her

Nothing more
Enchant the world
Unfathomable
Are the winds
Tired of contemplating the shadows
A deafening silence

He loves her, he adores her
He loves her
But the chaos of the body
Has its reasons, has its remorse

And the sky is
Without clouds
And the days
Seem long
Lost the heart of a woman
And death has her name

He loves her and he adores her
He loves her
He will still bleed
Until he dies
