Paradis – “Hémisphère” + video
The French can really nail the sophisto-cool aesthetic. Think of the Air or the smoother Daft Punk tracks filled with their Parisian calm and collected-ness. Being cool means never losing your cool…. etc. This track from Paradis, a young Parisian duo feels calm, collected and sexy. It’s a perfect noir-pop track which reinforces music related national stereotypes. The french lyrics are, “a macabre story of a lonely guest of life determined to leave everything behind.” Did I mention it is French?
