Brigitte: A bouche que veux-tu

If ever there was an act that should have been around when Serge Gainsbourg was at his peak it has to be Brigitte.

The pair, Sylvie Hoarau and Aurélie Saada, celebrate a certain French retro style that wafts effortlessly around the interzone between classy and kitsch, stylish and cheesy.

It's exactly the kind of area that M. Gainsboug operated in, and its easy to imagine they would have caught the bleary eye of the vieille canaille himself, who would no doubt have suggested a collaboration or two.

The video for is  A bouche que veux-tu  a knowing nod to 70s easy listening sophistication, all sparkly glamour and slow shots, the music with its violins and disco vibe a 21st century take on the sound of a San Tropez boit de nuit circa 1978.

The new release comes three years after the duo's debut album Vous, tu m’aimes?, a collection that went platinum in France.

They have a new album that is expected to come out on November 17, and they are touring in October and November with a date in Paris at La Cigale on November 19.
