The Last Shadow Puppets unveil new video for ‘Les Cactus’

The Last Shadow Puppets have released a video for new track, ‘Les Cactus‘, taken from their forthcoming release, Dream Synopsis EP…

The new track is a cover of Frenchman, Jacques Dutroncs’1967 hit, which sees Miles Kane and Alex Turner put their own spin on the classic French rock track.

The video is set in a recording studio, which shows the charismatic Turner throwing some eye-raising shapes and although Jacques might approve of the bands cover, he might question those dance moves… An impressive thing to note is just how good the Arctic Monkeys’ frontman sounds whilst singing in French.

One thing’s for certain, just like Dutronc did, the indie dream team capture the rebellious and party atmosphere of the 60s by simply, for three minutes, going out there and having fun.
