Fresh snow and warm feelings - Zoe Sanders

True to Montréal form, pop singer Zoe Sanders sings in both French and English. It's Québec's language equivalent of non-binary: it doesn't matter where you were born, who your parents are and what side people think you're on, you're both because 'oui can'. Get it?

Sanders' Christmas single 'La chute est douce' ('The soft fall') feels like being stuck in dark, downtown Montréal traffic but the powdered snow is so beautifully that you don't care. Or it's the caribou you drank at the office Christmas party kicking in. Or both. And you're not driving!

Besides having been a model, Sanders writes all her songs. She should be blasting off into space career-wise.
