Lili Fatale’s arrival on the scene, in 1997, was a big surprise, and the band’s first album’s mission was to modernize pop music in Québec. Two singles, “Mimi” and “Feels” in particular, resonated with audiences in Québec, Canada, and Europe. Each of the two songs received a SOCAN Classic Award at the 30th SOCAN Gala, held on Sept. 22, 2019, at Montréal’s La Tohu. SOCAN met with Nathalie Courchesne, Richard Binette, Uranian Valceanu, and Martin Beaulieu to talk about the stories behind the songs, and the circumstances of the band’s breakup after their second album.
