Admittedly, our obsession with France was started with Sebastien Tellier and Amélie, so when we got this video for “A Ballet” it was a no brainer.
His eclectic strand of electronic pop has been sampled by The Weeknd, he’s collaborated with everyone from Jean-Michel Jarre to Daft Punk and Sofia Coppola, gatecrashed the Eurovision Song Contest in a golf cart and his masterpiece La Ritournelle was described by NME as “basically Unfinished Sympathy part two.”
Long story short, he’s the shit.
With ‘A Ballet’, Tellier’s vocodered vocals deliver lyrics which feel both romantic and cryptic. And, he floats on cereal in the music video. What more could you want from a genius?
