The Parisian duo announce their impending rock-orientated second album.
Straying somewhat from their synth-laden dance roots, the next full-length effort from Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé sees the pair move closer towards progressive rock and pop territories with an album composed of instrumentation performed entirely by the outfit. According to an interview with Pitchfork it was important for Audio, Video, Disco to foster a "laid-back and homemade" aesthetic, with the pair labouring over not just recording it "bit by bit" themselves, but actually learning all the instruments featured on the record as well.
The album also supports a number of vocal guests including UK pop singer Ali Love, who co-wrote "Civilization," which was released as a single back in April. Morgan Phalen of NY rockers Diamond Nights and Vincenzi Vendetta of Australian band Midnight Juggernauts also feature.
