Indie-pop duo Ex en Provence have dropped the verité style visual for their debut single Counting Down The Suns, filmed entirely across the streets of Berlin. Channeling 90s nostalgia, the track' provides a stark, timely message, laced with storming indie-pop power.
Speaking of the song, the duo share: ”'Counting Down the Suns’, written in a summer of revolution and devastation is a song for hope and change. Sometimes, our fear of what lies ahead can be what drives us. We have to let go of things, parts or aspects of ourselves to readjust to a new climate. A rare airline corridor in September enabled Ex en Provence to reunite briefly in Berlin to shoot a music video with upcoming film maker Marta Maluva. The story follows two men on a surreal and slapstick journey through Berlin with an abandoned fridge. As well as an obvious reflection on global warming and the state of our planet. It’s also an ode to the things we hold dear and the struggles we face when the weight of the world is on our shoulders.”
Ex en Provence is the collaborative musical project of Londoner Samuel Deschamps (ex La Shark) and Berlin based Jan Blumentrath (Intergalactic Republic of Kongo, Ora The Molecule, Eliot Sumner). The duo met whilst on tour with their former bands before writing music together in a makeshift studio that they packed full of synthesisers.
