The Plastiscines: C'est la ouate

A new clip by French rock band The Plastiscines, with the track C'est la ouate.

The track comes from the new EP by the all-female three piece, entitled The Rock Cover, which comes out in collaboration with the Black XS perfume by Paco Rabane.

The original version of C'est la ouate was performed by Caroline Loeb who had a hit with the song in 1986. I was a hit in France as well as in Germany, Italy and Spain, and also reached the top ten in Argentina.

The new song is something of a comeback for The Plasticines, whose last release was their 2009 About Love collection that featured their best-known song Barcelona.

They were the first band to sign to NYLON records, a label set up by the Editor-in chief of the style magazine of the same name following the release of their 2007 debut album LP1

Their new EP features five tracks including Blue Jeans, originally by Lana Del rey and Murder on the Dancefloor originally by Sophie Ellis Bextor. Also featured are Sexy Boy by Air, and Wake me up before you go go originally by Wham!  All songs re-interpreted  in the Plasticine's own rock style.

The band have some live dates in France at the end of this month and at the beginning of next, including a show in Paris at La Maroquinerie on April 3.
