Automelodi‘s album Surlendemains Acides may have come out last year, but this new video for standout single “Metropole sous la pluie” reminds us that there’s never a bad time to revisit that record. Frontman Xavier Paradis moodily poses and shimmies in the fog, and makes us long for a world as mysteriously glamorous as this Emilie Serri-directed video. And the song? Still couldn’t ask for a better darkly pop single. Forever impressed.
Surlendemains Acides is still available on vinyl and digitally from Electric Voice Records.
