After the release of “With You” by Flight Facilities featuring Grosvenor, I had been anxiously awaiting the next release from FF. I was curious if it was going to be a melodic house track or perhaps some fancy nu-disco production, but to my surprise, the new single is a beautiful, electronically melodic, 8-minute track called “Clair De Lune.”
“Claire De Lune” is a lovely track that lets the angelic vocals of Christine Hoberg shine, and the production is nothing but the best; Flight Facilities never disappoints.
The song is perfect for closing your eyes and getting lost in a storybook animation. Not sure about you, but that is what comes to mind. Beautiful whimsical animations of two characters journeying through a surrealism landscape. But one character, a man, is contemplating leaving the whimsical romanticism, and the other character, a woman, is pleading for them not to go. Amidst the cries…does he leave?
I’ve been waiting about two weeks for Flight Facilities to release their new song“With You” featuring Grovesnor.The duo gave us a teaser of the song and a short 30 second glimpse of an animated video reminiscent of Megatron, Daft Punk, and Astroboy. But the video just left fans (especially me) anxious to finally hear the full track; you can’t tease people with such a tantalizing sub bass.
Usually I don’t get overly excited about a track and it’s impending video release, but Flight Facilities never fails to amaze me. I’ve loved their high quality production skills which infuse hints of house, funk, and vibes of a little electropop. And their track “With You” featuring Grovesnor is oh so funky, yet still soulfully driven by that hint of house.
Not only is the track a delight, but the lyrics and video are pretty cool. Animator Ben Drake apparently spent almost four months working on the animation, which derives inspiration from Daft Punk, Astroboy, and Megatron. The video tells the story of a Cyborg that falls in love with a woman who is married (which is actually the wife of the scientist who created him,) and then the two must flee, going somewhere to get away because as the song says, “I just can’t be seen with you.”
If you’re a fan of Flight Facilities, then I’m sure you’ll love the video. Check out the official video below for “With You” featuring Grovesnor, as well as the following remixes: With You extended 12″, MAM remix , Danny Daze 5am Remix, and the David August Remix.
