Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul share new single, announce North American tour
Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul have shared another single from their anticipated debut album, Topical Dancer. "Ceci n’est pas un cliché" ("This is not a cliché") is another banger, powered by slinky bass and a winking sense of humor. “This song is an accumulation of all the cliché lyrics so often used in pop music," the duo say. "It came about when we were touring and heard a song on the radio opening with 'I was walking down the street' which made us strongly cringe. But the thing is, cringing is a shared passion of Bolis and I. So we passionately made a song out of it."
The video follows suit, as they note: "Even more passionately we performed ourselves into a video about all the clichés we see in the magic world of musical genres. The musician in all its glory, capturing momentum and delivering a top notch performance, gazing into the light that’s called inspiration. And so for once and for all, please leave Magritte alone…!” Watch that below.
Topical Dancer, which was co-produced by Soulwax, is out March 4 via DEEWEE and Charlotte and Bolis have also announced a short North American headline tour that hits NYC, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle in May.
