Video: French 79 – Hometown

The music of Marseille-based French 79, aka Simon Henner, is filled with nostalgia and shimmering synths. “Hometown” – premiered on Billboard – is off his new album Joshua, out Nov 8 on Alter K. Previous video for “Hold On” conjures skateboarding videos of the 90s, echoing Simon’s childhood that inspired this record. Recalling the cinematic sounds of Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Soft Machine and remembering recording soundtracks from TV movies, Simon moves back in time to the worlds of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jacques Cousteau, François De Roubaix, Blade Runner and more.
