Nicolas Godin, one half of the French band Air, released his debut solo album, Contrepoint, in Europe back in September. Now the album is getting a U.S. release on February 26, 2016 via Because Music. Godin also did a very cool Take Away Show session for La Blogothèque. He and his band performed the song “Bach Off” in Orly Ouest Airport in Paris, France, but since the song sounds like the soundtrack to a 1970s cop thriller (à la Dirty Harry or Death Wish), they turned the session into a simple narrative as well. It opens with a woman in a trench coat walking into the airport with a briefcase, who encounters Godin and band performing and then sets down the briefcase.

Here’s what a press release had to say about the video: “November 7th 2015, 10:45pm. The last passengers in the Hall 3 of Paris Orly Ouest airport had just departed for La Réunion when a precarious silence dominated the hall. A ballet of musicians, technicians, sound engineers, DOPs and actors began. It all came together and then… the lights went down. It was midnight. The story unfolded in that futuristic and mysterious setting. Nicolas Godin surrounded by three of his musicians accompanied an intrigue in an 8-minute sequence shot following the mysterious actress Victoire Dubois through the empty terminal.”

Check out the very cool session below. And pick up Under the Radar’s current print issue to read an interview with Godin.
