COUR DE RÉCRÉ: "Vice Et Werther " Single and Video
COUR DE RÉCRÉ is a French group that is somehow a product of our times. The trio formed by Stan, Quentin and Chloe have found themselves obligated, for life’s many vicissitudes, to continue working on their songwriting online. Bytes of their songs have travelled to Avignon, Santiago de Chile, Canada, Toulouse and Paris. But after several years of intense activity on SoundCloud, and an EP (“Éponyme”) released in December 2018, they are going to take their next steps with Elefant Records.
And what better than our collection for new talent, New Adventures In Pop, to give shelter to some songs that dive into a bizarre, eclectic synth-pop, with touches of acid and, according to Stan himself, influences coming from Romain Guerret (DONDOLO, ALINE), LA MONJA ENANA and FREEZEPOP (he has been listening to so many Elefant albums since he was really young), THE PIROUETTES and DENIM. What we have here is a first taste of what will be their first Mini-LP with Elefant. And what a taste it is. “Vice Et Werther” is a twist on the story by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, but this time, Werther’s partner leaves him because of the excessive closeness with his best friend, and accepts the situation with the thought that “a friend is something very important in life, while love is just child’s play”. And this baroque story does not change the fact that this song is made to be danced to, with a chorus that would make fans of LIO and ELLI ET JACNO drool. It is an explosive mix of pop and electronica with touches of VIDEOCLUB, GO-KART MOZART, GFOTY, HIDROGENESSE and KERO KERO BONITO, with fantastic production by Joseph Signoret, the multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and founding member of the Parisian trio KEEP DANCING INC.
And the video, directed by Simon Néaumet and Sandra Besseas, is a wonderful reflection of the special universe the trio makes up: impossible attire in a mansion where this slippery love story - strange, eccentric, and tremendously hedonistic – plays out. It is all sunlight and color, vitality, a total Carpe Diem. And if this is just an appetizer, imagine what could come next. We cannot wait to show you the rest of the songs from COUR DE RÉCRÉ.
