As premiered on Shindig, Frank Maston releases the latest single from his upcoming record, Souvenir (due out September 10th, 2021). According to Maston:
“‘Swiss Franc’ is the last song on the album and the song we close the live show with. The light and dark elements give it a nice sense of balance – like a discotheque dirge. The video was made using some analogue video synthesisers, blended with a swiss franc coin which I modelled and animated. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the record and is very emblematic of my relationship and musical collaboration with L’Eclair, hence the title.”
More on Souvenir:
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 ’70s. An immediate thought occurred to him – what if he could record with this simpatico group backing him up? The result is the colourful and kinetic album Souvenir.
