Nicolas Godin – “Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde” (Feat. Thomas Mars) Video
French futurist-pop duo Air have been on hiatus since releasing Le Voyage Dans La Lune dropped in 2012, but Nicolas Godin has since been releasing music on his own. “Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde” is the second single we’re heading off of Godin’s forthcoming solo album Contrepoint, the first being the hyperactive “Orca,” which also debuted with a video. The songs on Contrepoint use Bach arrangements as their foundation, which is why “Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde” is named after the composer’s church cantata. Dorothée de Koon and Phoenix’s Thomas Mars (under his Gordon Tracks moniker) contribute vocals in German. Its accompanying post-apocalyptic video (directed by The Sacred Egg and produced by Riff Raff Films) features zombies surfing and hanging out on the beach without a living human in sight. Watch below.
Contrepoint is coming later this year on Because Music.
