Jef Barbara – “Pas Gentille” (Official Video)
In the last two years, Montreal’s Jef Barbara has taken us on one fabulous ride to the next. First was the chic, art-loft disco cut, “Wild Boys“, followed by the pussy air raid on “Flight 777“ and his slave trade couture visuals for the minimalist synth track, “Sebastien“.
Each track from the Contamination album introduced many layers to Jef’s boisterous sexuality, impeccable style, and unique vision; often tapping into Barbara’s deep seated fantasies.
The newest chapter of his sensual exploration, “Pas Gentille”, is actually a cover of a Françoise Hardy song from 1964.
Unlike the smooth acoustic guitar vibes in the original; Jef’s hazy, balearic pop and wonky percussion sets the stage for an even darker love story. From the looks of it, this love story takes place between a secluded park and weird, other world. Here is where you’ll find Jef layed out on the grass, looking fierce in the most vibrant, glittery blouse there is; glaring from the distance at the object of his current affection.
As the plot thickens, the worlds collide and Jef’s love gets lost in the mist while his lumberjack daddy is none the wiser.
Will they ever be one ? Or is it all a dream ? The answers you seek can be found on Jef’s forthcoming EP: Post-Exposure.
This gem drops sometime in November (via Club Roll) in North America and will also be released as a special limited-edition 7″ single on Tricatel (Europe).
Things are bound to get sexier from here on out, so you better stay tuned.
