French electronic production duo Grand Soleil have unveiled their latest single, Round Round Round, accompanied by an animated visual. The track is set to appear on the duos forthcoming record, Human Error, due out this April through Nowadays Records.
Bringing all that 90s pop goodness, Round Round Round is influenced b y the duos love and appreciation for jazz, funk, soul, electronic and hip-hop sounds. The accompanying animated video pays homage to the classic Sci-Fi cartoons from the 80s and presents us with a timely message, offering us the prefect respite we all need right now.
Speaking of the visual, Grand Soleil share: "To illustrate this music we chose to make an animated video. The topics covered are those of the impact of man on the planet and in the near future of the extinction of the human species. Where the animated film comes in is in its "surreal" dimension. The ferryman, a sort of personified divinity, will allow planet earth to come back to life with the counterpart of sacrificing humans. The ferryman will raise all the animals on earth into the heavens by levitating them around the earth like the rings of the Saturn. The animals died reinforcing a current implicit message of the extinction of many species and thus an ecological message."
Made up of brothers Pach and Drich, Grand Soleil take inspiration from genre's ranging from Hip Hop to techno with a pinch of French Touch, and their musical heros Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Flying Lotus. Having grown up at the height of 90s pop culture, the duo were nourished by jazz, hip hop, funk but also by science fiction throughout movies and cartoons.
