Comprised of Jean-Benoit Dunckel, half of the duo Air – unmistakably one of the most respected electro-pop bands in the world since their debut album Moon Safari in 1998 – and the London-based singer Lou Hayter (The New Siins, New Young Pony Club), the duo formed two years ago with no expectation other than to record one track for their own pleasure. It quickly turned out that their artistic universes fused so well and so naturally, they couldn’t help but record dozens of additional songs. While waiting for their debut album due in 2013, we warmly encourage you to experience this performance live.
Tomorrow’s World creates cinematic and emotional noir-pop love songs. They synthetize feminity, darkness and timeless feelings with their electro minimalist tunes, which then soar to a heightened drama with their eerie yet appealing starkness. Their influences range from Suicide to David Lynch’s favorite composer Angelo Badalamenti to Factory Floor, and are relevant illustrations of their picturesque and tense world. In a way, Tomorrow’s World follows Air’s steps in its achievement of composing stories.
They have played only distinct dates in France, among them the Cannes Film Festival, Salle Pleyel (the finest Concert Hall in Paris) and JC de Castelbajac’s fashion show.
