Watch: Le Cliché Release Music Video For New Track "Ballet"

Barcelona/New York based minimal synth, synth pop group Le Cliché have released the video for their new infectious track "Ballet".

The song is part of our current playlist. The band will release their forthcoming debut album 'Consumer Behaviour', in December through Medical Records LLC.

The album consists of 11 songs influenced largely by European synth pop of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s (The Human League, John Foxx, OMD, early Depeche Mode, Japan, Gary Numan, Propaganda and Kraftwerk.). More recent influences include the first album by Miss Kittin & the Hacker, Tiga, Benny Benassi, Erlend Øye and Ladytron. The music might be best described as minimal synth, synth pop, postmodernist, cold assembly line with neo consumerist themes, based on the use of synth sequences and virtual voices.

The track is taken from his latest record 'It's Album Time', released back in April via Olsen Records. Grab your copy here if you haven't already. 

The video, directed by Espen Friberg, features visuals of a real advertisement for a 1981 Delorean DMC-12, which is actually for sale. The seller of the car, whose name is Frank, used the following description in a press release:

"The world most iconic movie car could be yours! The time machine from the "Back to the future" movies, is an very rare and truly special American (produced in northern Ireland) sports car that always turns heads. It's over 30 years old, which means very low road taxes and insurance. The Delorean DMC-12 was only produced in the short timespan of 1981 to 1983 and is recognized for its wing-doors and stainless steel engine. The chassis was developed by Colin Chapman and the engine was designed by Giorgio Guigiaro. This car was bought brand new in the US in 1989, has had only 3 owners and has been extremely rarely used. It was imported to Norway in 2011 and has only had one owner since. The original paperwork and documentation from Carfax comes with the car.

If you are looking for an iconic sports car and a solid collector's item with a unique story, then this is the car for you!! Do send me a mail for a cosy chat about cars!"

Morrissey Reveals His Battle With Cancer

Our thoughts go out to Morrissey, as he has revealed that he has received a series of cancer treatments.

The announcement comes after the former Smiths singer cancelled part of a US tour when he was treated in hospital for a respiratory infection in June.

The 55-year-old musician told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo in a recent interview (via The Guardian): "I have had four cancer-scrapings, but so what. If I die, I die. If I don’t, then I don’t. As I sit here today, I feel very well."

Morrissey, who kicked off his latest European tour in Portugal Monday, added that while he has been affected by his illness, he promises to work hard nonetheless.

"I know I look quite bad on recent photographs," Morrissey wrote to El Mundo, "but I am afraid this is what illness does to the overall countenance. I will save relaxation for when I’m dead."

In this latest interview, Morrissey stated that he is “now at an age when I should no longer be making music … Many composers of classical music died at age 34. And I’m still here, and nobody knows what to do with me,” he said. The 55-year-old is currently finishing his debut novel, which he hopes to publish next year. “With luck I will be able to stop singing forever, which would make many people happy!”

He also scrapped 22 US concerts last year due to ill health. His other recent ailments have included pneumonia, an ulcer, the throat condition Barrett's oesophagus and anaemia.

The song is very uplifting and inspiring, which is truly important for this time."
