Les Deuxluxes unveil a sci-fi music video for the song Vacances Everest. Supported by a twangy guitar riff and an unsettling melody, the track is taken from their latest album Lighter Fluid, released just over a year ago on Bonsound. In 2020, Vacances Everest climbed to the top of Influence Franco’s charts via SiriusXM, and also found its way into CBC Radio 3's programming.
Immersing the viewer in an intergalactic adventure that pays tribute to old Star Trek episodes and cult science fiction films such as Barbarella with Jane Fonda or Queen of Outer Space with Zsa Zsa Gabor, the music video was directed by Ariel Poupart, a long-time friend and collaborator of the duo. Although the images are completely playful and surprising, the same cannot be said of the lyrics and their universal reach. Indeed, Vacances Everest is about the perseverance it takes to overcome life's obstacles and the idea of giving it all, even when you feel low.
