Just four months ago Local Suicide introduced you to The Aïkiu with their new album Ghost Youth. They are already back with more news: a new EP Win with an intriguing video directed by Nicolas Davenel (Birdy Nam Nam “Defiant Order”) in collaboration with MEN and Le Tigre queer icon JD Samson.
JD Samson has got news of her own too, a second album for her band MEN and a tour guest-staring Godmother in Berlin at Taint in Chesters on November 14th, and more dates in Paris on the 15th, Rome on the 16th, NYC on the 21st and finally two dates in Mexico on the 22nd and 23rd.
Alex Aikiu likes to call on friends like JD to collaborate on music; he also asked Eric D. Clark (From Disco to Disco, Whirlpool Productions…) for a bit of voodoo drums in his previous production “Let Me Freak Out” featuring the actress Isabelle Adjani.
Catch The Aïkiu live in Paris at La Gaîté Lyrique on November 16th and enjoy their truck fetichism-inspired video now!
