Like walking through Wonderland, French-Candian artist Super Plage’s music video for his latest single, ‘Forêt Magique’, exudes child-like joy; the flamboyant musician and his minions are recruiting listeners to join their legion of fun, inviting us to become a part of their magic.
Light-hearted and playful, the single strives to embody Super Plage’s central concept: “This song was inspired by a crazy trip to a festival where the music and the play of lights hidden in the forest completely bewitched us to create a magical moment during these scorching nights. It evokes dance, glitter and love in the river.”
The record ripples with psychedelia, shuttling listeners down a rabbit hole of light and sound. We plummet further and further, past whirlpools of kaleidoscopic imagery, clouds of candyfloss, and geometric nostalgia before landing in the artist’s imagination. Like Super Plage’s French, the blends between verses and choruses sound fluent, making for a single that falls gently on the ears.
After several concerts being canceled due to the global pandemic, disco and synth-pop band Le Couleur will be performing a virtual concert for all of their fans across the globe to enjoy. The concert will take place on the 17th of September to celebrate their forthcoming album release Concorde. Currently sitting over 10.9 million streams across multiple music streaming platforms, no wonder they have won the GAMIQ prize for the ‘Best Electronic EP of the Year’, their previous album release was also one of the 40 Canadian albums to selected to feature on the Polaris Music Long List.
The new album is inspired by the rise and fall of the historic Concorde event. The band is rooted in 70’s influence, from psychedelia, disco, yéyé and French chanson. I am sure that Le Couleur’s new album will easily be mistaken for a masterpiece that was created in the 70’s period.
Tune into the Le Couleur concert on Thursday, September 17th at 9pm Eastern Standard Time (EST)
