What is the original language? 


Breton: a French regional 
Her voice reminds me of Beth Gibbons from Portishead, and the lyrics remind me of early Cocteau Twins (in that I have no idea what she's singing, but I'm OK with it).

Here are the lyrics (in english):


Restart (Adkrog)

Murmur murmur
Tell me my fate
Hum hum
Sing your psalm

Stupor
Hit me
Sensation
Grow within me

My sap
Dries out
As melts
My strength
My sap
Dries out
And death is inevitable

!got my attention away from what I was doing!
!I'm glad I have a sub-woofer in my office!
This is cool, and the vibe reminds me a bit of the late 90s/early 2000s.
Wow, me likee mucho. Hard to get more eclectic that this. She is certainly pushing the edge of the envelope.
QUINQUIS [pronounced kɛ̃kis]

(aka Émilie Tiersen) – is a multidisciplinary Breton artist. Over two albums and several years Émilie recorded and released under the name 'Tiny Feet' but the recent name change, which pays homage to her personal and family history by referencing her maiden name, represents a fresh start musically.

The first track released, ‘Adkrog’ – which aptly translates as ‘Start Again’ -showcases QUINQUIS’ soothing yet unpredictable pulsations, feeling as though a new world is awakening and working out its newfound surroundings. “It’s about finding the energy in environment and nature,” she explains. “When I was feeling desperate, I sat outside and I prayed for nature to give me some answers. This song is about that – if you just let go then nature gives you an answer.” 

She's collaborating with producer and artist Gareth Jones (Sunroof, Liars, Depeche Mode and Apparat) and also touring in Europe with collaborator, husband and labelmate Yann Tiersen
