Fast rising musicians / song-writers / production duo PICARD BROTHERS (Clément and Maxime) channel the 90s spirit on the new tongue in cheek video for ‘It’s Not Over’ out now through Island Records. The pair explain: “In a parallel universe where the Picard Brothers are the most famous weightlifters in all of USSR, a young fan desperately workouts to look like his idols. He’ll soon find out that the machines have other plans for him.”
Having just completed a remix of Disclosure’s new track ‘Watch Your Step’ feat Kelis due to be released on 18th December, the duo draw on a myriad of influences from Jazz, funk, old school house, pop and disco. The brothers combine slick production methods with real instruments as evident in their previous releases ‘Won’t Let Go’ and ‘Running From My Life’, which garnered support from tastemaker press like Complex and Earmilk, including BBC Radio1 support from Toddla T, Rickie, Melvin & Charlie and Diplo.
The French duo possess a Midas touch when it comes to remixes, having chalked up hit remixes for the likes of international artists Beck, Robyn and Flume, including David Spinelli and Victor le Masne closer to home.
Championed by Diplo, the duo soon became part of his core production crew, playing pivotal parts in the creation of records by Beyoncé, Mark Ronson and Madonna. The pair then found themselves key players in the making of a number of huge hits, chiefly ‘Electricity’ by Silk City and Dua Lipa, which they co-wrote with Diplo and Mark Ronson. Their extraordinary working relationship with Ronson grew into co-writing eight of the songs on his Late Night Feelings LP, including smash single ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’.
Picard Brothers continue their foray forward with a clutch of shape shifting electronic pop tracks to be released early in the New Year, firmly heralding them as one of 2021’s most exciting innovators.
