Francois and The Atlas Mountains

When sending bands a filming request, you first think about which kind of connection you might already have with them; like which bands from their label you have already worked with or which bands they are hanging out with etc. With François we share quite a few of these connections as he is signed to the Scottish Fence Records (an artist collective that we’ve caught up with in the fishing village of Anstruther) and has joined the Glaswegian band Camera Obscura on tour. So it seemed only a matter of time, till we got to work with François. It is actually the first time that the French artist, who has spent several years in Bristol, is in Vienna. The first snow of the season fell the night of François’ arrival and already sets to melt on the next morning. You can hear it dripping, while François performs “Pic-Nic” with gentle bilingual vocals on a tiny balcony at the hotel. Back in his room he sits on his bed facing the window to cover the mellow “Snow Falls In November” by the Canadian musician Julie Doiron. May the world outside be smothered in snow, “we don’t go nowhere, not today, not tonight” when being lulled by François’ sonorous singing.
