Listen to Champagne Superchillin and let the bubbles take control.
The recently NYC-based band (by way of Nashville) is giving ’60s French pop a contemporary twist. Lead singer, Juliette Schultz, sings in her native French tongue, while the band adds futuristic melodies and experiments with synth and keys.
Their debut album Destino will be out Sept. 24th via Soft Junk Records, but in the meantime they’re sharing “Mon Loup,” a track from the upcoming album. Recorded in the famous Electric Lady Studio, the song leaves you babbling for more. It’s slow and eerie, as if you’re in a drunken haze, forcing you to sway back and forth. Yet, it’s also sweet and enchanting, as if part of a dream.
The music video is no exception. Filmed on the set of ’80s public access show Eternity Now and edited live, it pays homage to the kind of home videos we’re all used to watching on our VHS player. The slightly blurry images layered over gritty colors takes you down a strange psychedelic lane.
Pour yourself a nice Brut and enjoy the premiere video for “Mon Loup” below!
