Video Premiere: Matinee Club "Discotheque Francais"

Fomerly called The Modern, Matinee Club is alive and kicking! After Mercury Records foolishly dropped the '80s inspired pop outfit early last year, Nathan, Emma and Chi regrouped and decided to release their future records under a brand-new name.

Check out a brand-new video for their new single "Discotheque Francais" that was produced to kickstart their career. The video is a fantastic '40s inspired piece that tells the story of romance between a cabaret singer and her spy lover. It is somewhat of a mix between Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge and a classic World War II flick. You can tell plenty of money was invested to make the video look this good. And that is a very good sign. Things are finally getting serious for the band.

Also, look out for mixes of "Discotheque Francais" in your local clubs. Remixes on white vinyl were distributed to a select group of DJ tastemakers in London, New York and Los Angeles last week.  The band is working it from the club up.

It looks like Matinee Club is finally getting the spotlight they deserve. Keep checking Arjanwrites.com for much more Matinee Club in the weeks to come.

That has got to be the coolest video around at the moment. Great to see things happening for this band as they are everything a pop band should be i.e. beautiful, talented and fun.
