Montreal, QC-based trio, Le Couleur is made up of Laurence Giroux-Do (vocals), Patrick Gosselin (bass), and Steeven Chouinard (drums). The three will be releasing their forthcoming album, Concorde on April 17 via Lisbon Lux. Today, they have unveiled a video for the title track, “Concorde”.
Laurence Giroux-Do shares on how the group was inspired to pay tribute to the Concorde plan by using it as a symbol of relationship breakup,
“These are the last moments of the plane, which remembers its memories, its image, its exploits. Like the last discussion when you breakup, you remember our good times, trying everything to save the relationship but it ends and the name of this lover remains in our history, in our memory.”
The video was directed by Ariel Poupart in the group’s hometown of Montreal. He connected the track to the plane as a symbol, reflecting this in the imagery:
“Right after Le Couleur approached me for the project, I had a flash: I was going to pay homage to the plane Concorde, but in a symbolic way, by showing characters of all kinds, people in transit who are lost. They’re all looking for their destinations, whether it’s their soccer game, their all-inclusive hotel or their next flight. After the tragedy, they meet each other, stopped in time, their wandering souls cross without speaking, in limbo in forever.”
