"L'enfer" is a talisman to fight the darkest of thoughts, where Stromae skillfully juggles a spectrum of emotions. A depressive spiral that the artist lays bare in a few bars, from everyday boredom to the darkest forms of escape. The song acts as a further testament to Stromae’s ingenious and profound skills not just as a producer, musician but as a lyricist. A deluge of reverb and haunting voices become elegiac, and when the vengeful synth enters the stage, the listener has no choice but to join the fight.
The music video is a sequence shot that starts on Stromae's eye. As the camera pulls back, we discover him alone in a setting that is both sober and disturbing in its immensity. This continuous zoom out is punctuated by the singer's dark thoughts that gradually take over. The clip ends with a return on the eye of the singer, like the endless loop that can sometimes represent suffering and depression.
