Honestly, the Aussie electro-funk group Flight Facilities has yet to release a disappointing track. Big ups to them for their confidence and effectiveness on their new single with a new direction. Rather than the group’s traditionally upbeat disco dance style, “Clair De Lune” provides a dark and subdued sound, incorporating deep and reflective noises in a relaxed manner. Subtle down-tempo grooves flutter with a tingling piano, a heavy orchestral beat and the beautiful voice of Brooklyn-based indie vocalist Christine Hoberg.
Together, the feel is chilling and cinematic. This newly released video was shot in the Californian San Fernando Valley, starring Rachel Parsons as Claire and Kelsey Reinhardt as Luna. It is directed by Dave Ma, who has previously done work for Foals, Delphic, and The Horrors. The track is available now via Glassnote Records.
