French Disco Synth-Pop Band Le Couleur Shares ‘Silenzio’ Video

Hot off the back of the release of their album Concorde, released earlier this moth via Lisbon Lux Records, French disco synth-pop band LE COULEUR shares video for their single, ‘Silenzio’

Directed by the independent film director Ariel Poupart, the music video for ‘Silenzio’ has the beat picking up and flanged guitars take centre stage. ‘Silenzio’ is about death on the prowl, depicted as a betrayal in the mafia that ends with “il bacio della morte” (the kiss of death). Life and death is a powerful duality, but try as hard as we might, there’s no escaping the latter’s inexorable victory.

Director Ariel Poupart shares the concept behind the music video: “For Silenzio, we wanted to recreate the cabaret atmosphere of gangster films to match the song’s lyrics. We also went for the colour palettes and textures of Giallo films, that is to say the very saturated gore of Italian murder mystery films of the 70s.”

Currently based in Montreal, Canada, Le Couleur is led by Vietnamese-Canadian singer Laurence Giroux-Do and consists of Laurence, Patrick Gosselin (Bass, keyboard and guitar) and Steeven Chouinard (Drums and sequence programming). When finding inspiration for their sound that crosses the borders of synth-pop, nu-disco and French pop, Le Couleur turns to the likes of The Beatles, Bowie, Steroalab, Queen, Led Zeppelin and LCD Soundsystem. Their own remarkable sound draws closer parallels to the likes of Róisín Murphy, ABBA and Sébastien Tellier.

Le Couleur has received significant support across the globe, having been featured in publications such as The Fader, Noisey, All Music, Flaunt Mag, Brooklyn Vegan, Exclaim!, mxdwn, Atwood Magazine, Beats Per Minute, NOVU, CBC Music,  and Made In Shoreditch . The band is currently sitting at over 10.9 million plays across streaming platforms with features on noteworthy Youtube channels. Le Couleur has been nominated multiple times and won the GAMIQ prize for the ‘Best Electronic EP of the Year’ while their latest album ‘(P.O.P)’ was selected among 40 Canadian albums on the Polaris Music Long List.

Song of the Day: Drinking With The Devil – Lloyd Llewellyn

Taken from his latest EP baring the same name, LLOYD LLEWELLYN‘s single, ‘Drinking With The Devil’ features a compellingly atmospheric soundscape, serving as the perfect platform for his undeniably soulful-soft rock vocal delivery.

Speaking of the release, The South Wales singer-songwriter says: ‘This song came from a place where I battle with all sorts of temptations, a lot of back and forth clouded in even more negativity but not from anyone else but myself.

During these times I realise that the battle I have is something that makes me feel alive and I have started to revel and enjoy the flirting of pushing myself to the edge. Don’t get me wrong there is a lot of struggle and darkness within those times but when I’m holding all the cards I don’t mind pouring the whiskey.’

Taking early influence from his grandfather’s love of Charles Brown and Nat King Cole, to first hearing Led Zepplin and The Doors with his Dad, Lloyd found his way to artists such as The National and Bon Iver. He has played at Boardmasters, Isle of Wight Festival, Bergenfest, Camden Rocks, Glastonbury, headlined a stage at Alternative Escape, is a regular at Sofar Sounds and, has sold out headline gigs at Notting Hill Arts Club, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen and Camden Assembly.

His first single ‘Long Way Down’ was played on BBC Wales and BBC 6, quickly followed by his second single ‘Selfish Skin’ via BBC Introducing…I have a very strong feeling that ‘Drinking With The Devil’ will gravitate even more attention from major music figures.
