Yann Tiersen: Meteorites

A new video for the track Meteorites by Yann Tiersen, from his Infinity album that was released earlier this

I could listen to this track all day, as indeed I could to the rest of the Infinity album. It really is one of the finest releases of the year.

Aidan Moffat is of course formerly of Arab Strap, and a solo artist in his own right.  He doesn't look much like Clémence Poésy, an actress who has featured in films like In Bruges, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire  and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and TV series like Gossip Girl and The Tunnel.

 Somehow hearing an unapologetically Scots accent on a French release is an added bonus, and having Clémence Poésy as the face of the narrator changes the perspective of the lyrics subtly but completely.

Yann Tiersen is touring extensively this autumn, and plays in Manchester and London in September.
