Tahiti 80 – “Easy”(Video)

Posted in News with tags , , on April 27, 2011 by dk

French indie pop architects Tahiti 80 have released a whimsical animated video for the song “Easy,” off their latest full-length The Past, The Present, & The Possible (out now on Human Sounds). The clip was directed by Daisuke Kitayama, who helmed their videos for “Darlin”and “Solitary Bizness.” On “Easy” the band layers numerous, playful hooks over a breezy and danceable backbeat.

Tahiti 80 specialize in a danceable mix of carefree melodies and intoxicating grooves. The band’s debut album, Puzzle, was released by Minty Fresh in the U.S. in 1999, and was critically acclaimed as a refreshingly upbeat nod to late 60s West Coast pop (particularly the Beach Boys). The album also placed Tahiti 80 squarely in the center of the “French Pop Invasion” that was hitting the U.S., along with fellow French bands Phoenix and Air (most notably). The band has been relentlessly productive ever since, having released an astounding ten EP’s and The Past, The Present & The Possible marking their sixth full-length album.
