Grand Soleil Release Animated 80s Sci-fi Video for ‘Round Round Round’

Grand Soleil have released their new single “Round Round Round,” lifted from the forthcoming album Human Error due April 9 via Nowadays Records.

Channeling the spirit of 90s pop, “Round Round Round” draws on a myriad of influences from electronic, jazz, funk, soul, and hip-hop. The accompanying animated video pays homage to the classic Sci-Fi cartoons from the 80s and presents us with a timely message, offering us the perfect respite we all need right now. 

They say, “To illustrate this music we chose to make an animated video. The topics covered are those of the impact of man on the planet and in the near future of the extinction of the human species. Where the animated film comes in is in its “surreal” dimension. The ferryman, a sort of personified divinity, will allow planet earth to come back to life with the counterpart of sacrificing humans. The ferryman will raise all the animals on earth into the heavens by levitating them around the earth like the rings of the Saturn. The animals died reinforcing a current implicit message of the extinction of many species and thus an ecological message.”

Grand Soleil are two brothers Pach and Drich, both share a love for eclecticism – they grew up cradled by the 90s pop culture nourished by jazz, hip hop, funk but also by science fiction throughout movies and cartoons. These inspirations gave them necessary freedom and limitless curiosity. From Hip Hop to techno with a pinch of French Touch, the duo draw inspiration from their idols (Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Flying Lotus).
