NEWS: Steven Soderbergh directs DTCV’s video for ‘Histoire Seule’
French-American garage pop duo DTCV(pronounced “detective”) are gearing up to release their new album Confusion Moderne on 28th October via Xemu Records. The LP was recorded alongside psych guru Joel Jerome and captures what the band like to call “anarcho-symbolist rock,” entirely written by Lola in French to reflect her anti-consumerist, eco-feminist concerns.
To direct the video for their latest single, ‘Histoire Seule,’ DTCV recruited Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh. Across a split screen, the video compares the sleekness of the modern day with the simplicity and natural surroundings of times gone by. Occasionally, the screen burns and little details are focused in on. It’s a clip that’s oblique but all the more interesting as a result. Watch below.
DTCV are also heading out on tour from next week, playing in venues across the UK. Details below.
