Cassius drop infectious new single ‘Don’t Let Me Be’
Legendary French duo Cassius have unveiled their latest single ‘Don’t Let Me Be’, out 21st June viaCaroline.
‘Don’t Let Me Be’ locks in Cassius’ trademark pop-house sound, pairing an infectious hook with a carefree, no-frills beat. The single also comes with a feelgood video, which sees a girl excitedly dancing around her flat whilst dressing to meet friends.
“Since the first listening of ‘Don’t Let Me Be’, I heard one of those tracks which makes you wanna dance on summer mornings as well as at the middle of the night,” explains the video’s director Emma Le Doyen.
“So I took as a starting point the remake of one of my favorite scenes: the sequence of Strip Tease, a film by Andrew Bergman where Demi Moore comes out of her shower and dresses in music and dance, missing at any moment to reveal to us her nakedness. In this sequence, she is so sexy, while remaining so simple. The track has something of that.
“This is a simple clip, good vibe, uninhibited and filled with kitsch winks to cult movies of the 80’s where we place the dance and music in the heart of life!”
At the forefront of the development of the ‘French Touch’ sound, Cassius have been releasing boundary-pushing music for over 20 years whilst continuing to develop their hometown scene. ‘Don’t Let Me Be’ is the second single release from Cassius’ forthcoming Dreems album, out Friday.
Showing no signs of letting up after an already celebrated musical career, ‘Don’t Let Me Be’ represents the next chapter in the story of two of dance music’s true innovators.
