Secret Sun share a video for NHNT

Secret Sun present a video for NHNT, the fourth and last single off their critically-acclaimed album Cold Coast. The band’s debut album was released via Bonsound exactly two years ago.

For the dreamlike song, actors Caroline Dhavernas and Alexandre Landry slip into the skin of a rebellious couple. The video, directed by Pierre-Alexandre Girard and Daniel Abraham from DTO Films, draws us into an intimacy that is both belligerent and loving.

Watch and share the video for NHNT via YouTube.

This fall, Secret Sun will be preparing to record their sophomore effort, due out in 2017.

Les Deuxluxes share a video for Springtime Devil

After the release of their very first album Springtime Devil, named one of the most innovative releases heard in quite some time (Gerrod Harris, Canadian Beats), Les Deuxluxes strike again and present a brand new music video for the album’s title song. The duo, comprised of Anna Frances Meyer and Étienne Barry, stole the show last week at the FME in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and play a sold-out show to boot. The band radiates simple, delirious fun, relying on meaty guitar hooks and no-frills drums [...] to rock the room. (Matt Williams, Exclaim!)

Directed by Dan & Pag, the video is pure Les Deuxluxes: crazy, glamorous, explosive and rock’n’roll. Dressed in leather and glitter, the one-of-a-kind duo delivers the goods with their signature style. This video makes it impossible to remain unmoved by their raw live energy.

Les Deuxluxes are currently touring Quebec this summer and will officially launch their album on September 15th at La Tulipe. Tickets are on sale now.
