La Sécurité – Hot Topic [Music Video]

So I’ve been hearing some buzz surrounding this Montreal-based called La Sécurité and they will be playing Pop Montreal 2023.
Today the band dropped the music video for Hot Topic which is the final single taken from the band’s debut album Stay Safe! which drops tomorrow via Mothland.
A cool artsy new-wave post-punk tune that feels classic and modern.

About the track:
An ode to unapologetic female solidarity, the track exemplifies the band’s sound featuring a lurching, disconcerting, yet endlessly danceable groove that provides a sinister dance-punk edge to frontwoman Éliane Viens-Synnott’s wry lyricism.
The song’s genesis is deeply entwined with that of the music video; the music was initially crafted to score an extended avant-garde dance piece also called “Hot Topic,” choreographed by Éliane and shot in a single continuous take.

She explains, “The concept was to choreograph a dance piece to be shot as a sequence to capture the ephemeral elements present in performing arts. Drawing influences from the Riot Grrrl movement, I created a dance piece where five women take up all the space on a dancefloor, unapologetically. We can dress how we want, enjoy our night out however that looks for us and we don’t care what you think.”
After completing the piece, the band edited down the song into the version that appears on Stay Safe!.
The music video, too, is an abridged version of the original dance piece. The song and video are a testament to the band’s unique nature as a collaborative, artistically open group with varied and differing creative ambitions and entanglements. The ecstatic magic of La Sécurité comes when these interests are brought together into a radical milieu.
