Frànçois and The Atlas Mountains’ “La Vérité” Is a Psychological Mind Bender with Ghost Cats
French indie-pop group Frànçois and The Atlas Mountains are about to release their fourth album, Piano Ombre, in March. To go along with the announcement, the group has released the lead single from the set, a catchy, rhythmic pop song called “La Vérité” (or “The Truth” for those of us who don’t know French). But even if you don’t know what he’s singing about, ”La Vérité” is accessible and catchy, with a hook so good that you’ll be singing along even though you don’t know the words. The Mathieu Demy-directed music video features flying ghost cats. And while I’m sure that fact alone is enough to get you to watch, it doesn’t quite do the beautiful video justice. More properly, the clip shows an obsessive boyfriend exploring the psyche behind his obsessiveness while attending a large house party. But, yeah, I mean… there are flying ghost cats at one point.
