Press about the video:
“Montreal’s Le Couleur, a group led by the Vietnamese-Quebecois femme fatale Laurence Giroux-Do, don’t hide their vintage disco leanings—in fact, while similarly flirty music from the likes of Air and Sébastian Tellier, succeeds when it’s mostly weightless. These guys debuted with a pulsating EP that grabs you by the hips and digs its brightly painted fingernails in for a bedroom dancing soundtrack bar none.
