French Concession Unveils Single / Video 'Peak'

Annabel Kean / Friday 11th December, 2020 12:04PM

In the new single from Ōtautahi / Hong Kong artist French Concession, the ethereal vocals are dropped for "non-binary" pitch-shifted harmonies, separating 'Peak' from the dream-pop of her last album The Garden Of Synthetic Sentiments. Ella Chau, the brains behind French Concession, has conjured up her very own high-density city for the 3D-rendered visuals, allowing us to be flies on the wall in luxury living spaces, soar above snaking roads, and narrowly miss 50ft women on the highway. The lyrics themselves tell a love-story, of a new romance taking off once free from the noise of big city living, "in the forest ground, silence nurtured feelings waiting to be found". Escape with French Concession in 'Peak' with a virtual trip to somewhere out of reach...

"I think this video reflects everyone’s fantasies who lives in crowded cities such as Hong Kong, and less of my own. Perhaps with the help immersive technologies, we can at least fulfil our dreams in another reality, without so much the exploitation of others."
