In 2018, composer/producer Frank Maston was living in Paris, working on new music when he was introduced to Geneva based band L’Eclair. Blown away by what he heard, there seemed to be a mutual understanding and appreciation for that loungey, groovy world of library and soundtrack music from the seventies. An immediate thought occurred to him - what if he could record with this simpatico group backing him up? The result is the colorful and kinetic album Souvenir, out today September 10 on Innovative Leisure / Calico Discos (the label of Cali band Allah Las).
To accompany the album release, Maston is sharing a new animated video for album single "Do You Feel It Working?" According to Maston "This song was written in the summer of 2018 and recorded in February 2019. It was the first vocal song I wrote since my debut album. L’Eclair joins me on the recording, which was engineered and mixed by Jasper Geluk at Tone Boutique in Haarlem. I’m playing the Rhodes Piano and singing. The video was animated by Mark Neeley.”
