Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains share new video for Tendre Est l'Âme
9th February 2017
Taken from the recently announced forthcoming record, Solide Mirage, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains has today shared the new video for ‘Tendre Est l’Âme’. Starring Fránçois Marry as a small town postman, the video was directed by Robin Lachenal. On the video, Fránçois says: “Our new song deals with bullied romantics, the soul of eggs, and being the ghost of yourself. The vocal phrase "Eeeyou-eeeyou" resonates like a distant chorus from a blurred memory.”
Solide Mirage is the group’s most outspoken and deep-rooted work to date, it is like an imperceptible dream, a fantasy where reality shifts as one approaches it – a perfect definition for this protean, changeable-yet-direct album which reveals new facets and new landscapes in every listen. Sometimes soft sometimes tough, sometimes crazy, but always highly political, whether direct or reading between the lines. The album was recorded in Jet Studios in Brussels and produced by Ash Workman, who also worked on Piano Ombre and who has worked with Metronomy and Christine & The Queens, with strings performed by Owen Pallett.
Solide Mirage is available to pre-order now on deluxe LP (which includes a 7” featuring the exclusive tracks ‘Night Thoughts’ & ‘Feu de Joie’) (WIGLPX379), standard LP (WIGLP379), CD (WIGCD379) and digital download (WIG379D).
