L’Impératrice have announced their forthcoming album Tako Tsubo, which is set for release on March 26th, and as part of the announcement they’ve shared a video for their new track “Peur des Filles.”
Tako Tsubo is “the official name for the broken-heart syndrome, (蛸 壺, from Japanese “octopus trap”), which manifests itself by a deformation of the heart due to an intense emotion – a negative or positive one,” according to a press release.
The new track, which serves as a sarcastic ode to femininity, sees the Parisian band at their wittiest, delivering scathing lyrics atop silky, groovy instrumentals. The captivating Aube Perrie-directed video is packed with references to Mars Attacks, Warren G, and horror films from the ’60s.
