Southern France-based indie rock duo La Choze formed back in 2017. Since their formation, the French duo have developed and honed a brooding and cinematic sound centered inspired by 60s pop, featuring reverb-bathed guitars and tremolo.
La Choze’s third album 10 songs about love, loss and much more was released this past Saturday through Blössom Records. The album’s latest single, the brooding “Saturday” sees the French duo further establishing their incredibly cinematic sound — with the song built around shimmering, reverb-drenched guitars, gently padded drumming and ethereal boy-girl harmonizing. The end result is a song that reminds me a bit of Chris Issak‘s “Wicked Game” and Slow Air era Still Corners centered around aching regret and nostalgia.
The recently released video features the duo on a road trip through the French countryside in a vintage, purple Volkswagen Beetle: We the duo driving on winding, two lane blacktop under enormous skies.
