Debut Album ‘Tomorrow’s World’ Released April 8th via Naïve
Tomorrow’s World release their self-titled debut album on April 8th via French label Naïve, a noirish cut of Suicide-meets-Shangri-La’s pop and cinematic love songs that’s smooth to the touch but scored with darker intent. The duo is a joint venture between London-based singer and musician, Lou Hayter and Jean-Benoit Dunckel of the French band Air. The pair began recording together in Paris in the summer of 2010 after Lou was recommended to Jean-Benoit, who had been toying with the idea of working with a singer during a break from Air.
In the video for new single ‘Drive’, director Gautier Dulion transforms Lou into a Hitchock-style actress, running away from her past and a supposed heart break. The rain, the city lights and car lights reflection bring her back memories of the loved one she’s driving away from. Jean-Benoit’s face appears to whisper the word DRIVE to Lou as if to push her to accelerate. An homage to Fritz Lang silent movies, to B-movies with the artificial décor built around the car.
