Le Couleur – “Club Italien” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Montreal synthpop trio Le Couleur champion the kind of bubbly-toasting, nightclub-slithering, titanic glamor that will never fall completely out of style. It’s not a pastiche, either. Their records are svelte but bursting with movement, with supple basslines directing the traffic of unyielding percussion. And even that metaphor may be a bit too pedestrian considering Le Couleur’s sugary French vocal delivery. All of their chic is reflected in the sensual disco burner “Club Italien,” featured on their new EP, Dolce Désir. In the song’s languid single-shot video, we’re spun around a late-night cocktail lounge to catalog the antics of its (mostly male) patrons, while the band grooves elegantly in the corner. There’s a twist, too, which makes for a bit of added fun at the end. La Barbe Rousse and Joseph Heskia direct. Watch it below.
