The excellent new video from NYC/LA band Nous Non Plus for “Loli” off their forthcoming release, Menagerie, which features Jean-Luc Retard, (also known as Björn Türoque of Air Guitar Nation fame), chanteuse Celine Dijon, LA composer/producer Michael Andrews (Brendan Benson, Metric, Me You and Everyone We Know) and Joachim Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club, Hello Stranger), among others.
Nous Non Plus’ “Loli” Video
Pitchfork TV premiered the video saying, “The iconic sunglasses suggest French-language New York indie-rockers Nous Non Plus appear to have Stanley Kubrick’s film version [of “Lolita”] in mind for their new “Loli” video…this solid single puts Strokes-esque vox, with French lyrics…over breezy, 1960s-tinged garage-pop. Meanwhile, the Greg Harrison-directed video gives us streamers, balloons, some nifty effects, and entendres aplenty involving a scantily clad young woman and her lecherous beau.”
Menagerie builds on NNP’s 60’s French pop influences–mixing Moog synthesizers with string sections, horns with distorted guitars, and includes a cover of The Unicorns’ song “Tuff Ghost.” Their music has also recently been featured on Gossip Girl and in European mobile phone commercials.
