Heiligen in de popmuziek

Theresia van Ávila

Heilige Thérèse
Soulwax kiest in het nummer ‘Heaven scent’ om de heilige Therese in de spotlights te zetten. De funky basloopjes en synthesizergeluiden worden gecombineerd met het door actrice Chloë Sevigny hardop uitgesproken gedicht ‘Prayer to saint Thérèse’. Soulwax liet zich inspireren door de beroemd geworden gebeden van deze in de negentiende eeuw levende ‘tienernon’. Het meisje werd non op haar vijftiende, ze had volgens veel gelovigen een heel bijzondere band met God. Thérèse hield van bloemen en zag zichzelf als de kleine bloem van Jezus. Een bloemetje dat God verheerlijkt door gewoon zichzelf te zijn in de veelkleurige tuin van God. De ‘little flower’ werd helaas slechts 24 jaar oud, maar ze inspireert blijkbaar nog steeds. Soulwax: ‘We wanted to do something unique and arresting, Chloë is catholic and we are all about flowers and spirituality. Saint Thérèse is a muse to both of us.
