“Miami Vice” is the new single from Parquet, a French experimental band based in Lyon. The single is taken from sparkles & mud, a phenomenal full-length album to be released on October 27 via Carton Records.
The music video was shot in two parts: the first section (inside the television) was shot with a small crew in several locations in the south of France, while the second section was shot in Lyon’s Cinéfabrique. The slow tracking shot emphasizes the presence of pointless, stubborn, powerful, and peaceful determination. As in “brute,” their most recent video released in June, they focus on length and repetition while ignoring aesthetics.
Parquet explores the concept of states, both physical and psychological. These are often reached at the end of an evolutionary and diffuse process. The band, which was founded in 2014 by drummer Sébastien Brun, totally embraces the fantasy of playing techno music with instruments. The ensemble, which is iconoclastic by nature, distinguishes itself via its mesmerizing abilities.
Pre-order the full-length album from Parquet coming October 27th!
