Video of the Moment #2333: Juveniles

Far too often these days, the story of a band ends in dissolution and breakup. So when I heard Juveniles from France still existed, it filled me with so much hope. At my first Great Escape in 2012, I saw the act play at the basement of Komedia. Juveniles is now the solo act of Jean Sylvain, with some help from producer Joakim Bouaziz. Things were a bit crazy while we were away for SXSW 2017, so we missed the release of Juveniles’ latest album ‘Without Warning’.

But we’re going to try and make up for that by introducing you to the music video for ‘Someone Better’, taken from the brand new LP. The song is super funky: hell-o, massive bass beats! In the video, Sylvain serves as the director of another music video (it’s not as confusing as it sounds, really), and as has been repeated many times in popular music, sometimes it’s all about just one touch. The script blurs with reality, with what was supposed to happen with the actors instead translates to some of the crew. Watch the video for ‘Someone Better’ below; you can get Juveniles’ album ‘Without Warning’ from Paradis/Capitol Records. To take a look back at Juveniles’ former forms, read our past coverage on the act through here.
