We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Un âne gonflable’s music video for their song “Miss Lulu” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming self-titled album, which is scheduled to be released on March 2, 2018.
“I wanted to underline, with some humor, side effects of the use of online dating apps. Such as people using the service not to meet new persons but to feel desired, to feel alive. Or, people being afraid to talk to other persons in real, which creates interesting distortions between your public self and your digital/writing self. That’s why we have chosen to use masks and a cardboard cutout world for the video. Accordingly to the topic, Miss Lulu is, musically, a feel good guitar pop song with a few lines of clarinet here and there to give a romantic touch,” said frontman and songwriter Luc André.
About the band:
Un âne gonflable is an elegant indie band based in Berlin. Influenced by The Whitest Boy Alive, The Strokes, Femi Kutiand French pop acts, they mix powerful guitars with dancy, syncopated grooves, enriched by a hint of clarinet.
The well-arranged melodies are inlaid with heavily ironic, sweet and sour lines in French, English and German, in which frontman Luc André tells short stories about the woes of Generation Y.
Anything can happen within this album – you might get trapped in an elevator at the end of the night, ask out your colleague from the next desk or try to act like Hank Moody from the show Californication.
