Manic Pixie Dream Girl!

The debut feminist rock opera concept album from Brea Fournier & the Dream Ballet tells the story of an infamous film archetype's journey to proving to her audience (and herself) that she is more than an object for the male gaze. Now Streaming.

"If you haven’t listened to Manic Pixie Dream Girl, prepare to put on your headphones and live the story out. It’s a colourful, funny, emotional, and relatable album about discovering who you truly are. “Manic Pixie Dream Girl!” is crafted so that the listener can immerse themselves and perceive themselves in the story of Manic Pixie Dream Girl, who’s crafted through the lens of a rock opera but is ultimately someone human like them."

-Esosa Zuwa, Fresh Off the Scene Magazine


"Manic Pixie Dream Girl! has a potent, radiant message at its core...consistently fantastic instrumentals...wonderful presence from the band’s frontwoman, and enough creative ambition that I already can’t wait to see where The Dream Ballet goes from here. Until then, this splendid little piece of riot grrrl revivalism (and every other genre the band aims for, for that matter) will work just fine."

The second release from Manic Pixie Dream Girl!, Nine of Swords is a witchy power ballad dedicated to any self-proclaimed Manic Pixie who has dealt with feelings of intense anxiety and self-doubt.

The first release from Brea Fournier & the Dream Ballet's upcoming debut rock opera concept album Manic Pixie Dream Girl!, "Petty Stuff" represents a pivotal point for the titular main character as her one-dimensional worldly perception begins to unravel.

It's a shameless proclamation of imperfection and an anthem that acts as a weapon against toxic positivity and other ailments of modern day social media culture. Diet culture and childhood tormentors get called out, as does Gwyneth Paltrow, in this angsty bop that will surely trigger pop-punk nostalgia.

This Valentine's season, my song almost two years in the making, "Rebound Phase," will be released on all platforms. My number one policy will always be honesty, especially with my listeners, so I would love to tell you where my head and heart are at today.

This was originally written just after I moved to New York and broke up with my high school sweetheart. A year later, I fell in love again. I fell hard and fast, in a whirlwind workplace romance that made me feel like I was living in a fairytale. Suddenly, that magic came crashing down in an instant. Finding out you love someone who doesn't even exist is devastating, and that's as lightly as I can put it. I discovered through a series of malicious texts he was cheating on me with my coworker and friend, lying to me and his ex-girlfriend. This all occurred right before a big week for me: my birthday, Valentine's, and the release of this single.

You guys, this is some DEEP stuff. You never think you could be the one to be deceived like this until it happens to you. Because it's not the infidelity that stings as much as the web of lies. If I've learned anything, it's that the truth will always shine through. Womanhood will overcome––I've been able to begin a friendship with another woman he hurt and we are healing together.

This song is dedicated to anyone who's been knocked down for their compassion and love. As hard as it is, remember no one can ever replace you.


This is..."Rebound Phase"
