New Audio: audran and Oscar Lesage Team Up on a Banger

Audran Cattin is a French actor, best known for being in the series, Les Bracelets Rouges. Building upon a growing reputation as an actor, his first starring role in a movie, which also features Kad Merad, Clovis Cormillac and Isabelle Carré is forthcoming. Cattin is also a musician and emcee, who writes, records and performs as the mononymic audran.

Cattin’s latest single “Plastiq,” a collaboration with Oscar Lesage, a fellow actor and vocalist, who is known for roles in Canal +‘s and BBC’s Marie Antoinette and for the theme song for the Netflix series Liaisons Dangerueses. Built around a production that features an eerily twinkling piano sample paired menacing synths and skittering trap beats serving as a sleek and modern bed for Cattin and Lessage to delivery densely worded bars with swaggering deliveries. Sonically, “Plastiq” reminds me of Rowjay‘s Carnival de Finesse and Ligne Quartre‘s Arret Demande.

The French actor and artist’s two previous singles, along with “Plastiq” will appear on his debut EP EMOJI, which is slated for a March 10, 2023 release. The EP structurally and thematically tells an eight part story — a sort of auditory short film — that follows young person, who asks himself existential questions across the course of a night.
