Housse de Racket: Encore

An astonishingly psychedelic video by Housse de Racket, for their track Encore.

For the clip the band collaborated with contemporary artist Ralph Kistler and his Paradiseator, a technique to create eye-popping collages.

He says: "Contemporary leisure sites have created an environment to stimulate an universal lifestyle experience. Shopping Malls, Hotel Resorts and Tourist Cities are the Heterotopias of the late modernity: artificial places full of copy-and-paste stereotypes. The yearning associated with this allegory of a happy and carefree life is the ideal background to promote consumerism.

"The Paradiseator invites the user to interact with these patterns and create his own surreal version of paradise."

The Paris-based duo release their third album shortly, a follow up to 2011's Alesia.

Their Forty Love debut from 2008 established  Pierre Leroux and Victor le Masne as one of the French music scene's most significant acts.

The track comes form their forthcoming album The Tourist, which is released on Friday. THe title track emerged earlier this month.

 They play at Le Trianon in Paris on November 28.
