Comett: Once Upon a Time/The City of Lights
A mention for the single Once Upon a Time/The City of Lights by French band Comett.
France currently has a well-deserved reputation for electro pop releases, and this is certainly one of the best I've heard recently.
The band is a duo, Alex and Julien, that has been active since 2005, releasing their first EP that year. They have not released much over the years, but they are working on their debut album.
In recent years they have collaborated with graphic designer Ozano to produce their striking visual identity, which they've made the most of in this memorable video.
The video was made by production company Les lapins de l'espace and features a character who has been named Cosmo, who appeared in an earlier video by the band. As one Youtube poster commented: "It's like they're a new clay-mated daft punk."
Les lapins de l'espace have also made videos for Zuccero and Hawa.
Comett are currently working on their debut album, hopefully surfacing some time in 2012.
