“Sounds as if they have stepped out of Quentin Tarantino’s dreams…. a 60s-saturated stunner” Uncut
“Garagey, soundtrack-infused psych, a swirl of pounding drums, spoken French, baroque melodies” Mojo
“The Limiñanas stick to what they know — The Velvet Underground, Serge Gainsbourg, JAMC fuzz, ’60s soundtracks — but it always sounds effortless and cool” Brooklyn Vegan
French psych duo The Limiñanas have announced their new album ‘Shadow People‘ will be released on 19th January on Because Music.
They have now shared the video for ‘Shadow People’, a track taken from their recently released ‘Istanbul Is Sleepy’ EP, and which will also appear on their full length.
Directed by previous collaborator Aurelien Richter, the video features acclaimed French actress Emmanuelle Seigner, who also provides vocals on the track.
The video was shot in The Limiñanas’ home studio in Cabestany in the South of France, and it also features Foulke de Boixo, the dancing hero from previous video ‘Istanbul is Sleepy‘, and Renaud Picard, who duets with Emmanuelle Seigner in the song.
Lionel from the band explains: “The shadow people are an American myth, they are described as furtive apparitions, comparable to ghosts observable from the corner of the eye. These “spirits” accompany throughout your all life, a sort of paranormal glue stuck to you…” Emmanuelle Seigner added: “A friend introduced me to The Limiñanas, I was in love with their Music. Three days before our first meeting, Lionel Limiñana called me and offered me to sing on one song off their new album. He sent me ‘Shadow People’. Then we recorded directly at their home, it was fast, easy and pretty natural”.
One of France’s most beloved treasures, The Limiñanas are Marie (drums/vocals) and Lionel (guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals). Hailing from Perpignan, the duo straddles the boundary between psych, shoegaze, and yé-yé. With hazy, reverb-laden hooks, combined at times with noisy distortion, and fronted by effortlessly cool vocals, reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot,the band is at once timeless and quintessentially French.
New album ‘Twinsting the Shadow People’ was recorded and produced at The Brian Jonestown Massacre‘s Anton Newcombe‘s studio in Berlin.
