Video: Essaie Pas – Lights Out
Montreal-based electronic duo Essaie pas have unveiled the official video for “Lights Out”, taken from their debut Demain est une autre nuit (Tomorrow Is Another Night), which is out now on DFA Records.
Essaie pas is Marie Davidson and Pierre Guerineau. Both are respected musicians in their own right – Marie having released two acclaimed solo records, with Pierre being best known for production work on underground Canadian musicians such as Dirty Beaches and Femminielli.
Their music cannot be tied to a specific genre. It is a document of the encounter of two human beings mutually experimenting with music and sounds, and eventually falling in love while doing so. Their musical language is vibrant and varied – comparisons range from Film Soundtracks, Electronic Body Music, Disco, and Techno, with sensually-delivered lyrics exploring the themes of fantasies, obsessions, and the feeling of “The Void”.
