With his new album ‘Banane Bleue’ set for release on 26th February, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains is giving us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing new track ‘Holly Golightly’.
“’Holly Golightly’ refers to the character in the Truman Capote novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” he explains. “Taken from the point of view of a writer fascinated by an endearing neighbouring friend, the narrator keeps his passion silent and writes letters instead (“crashing into the stationary”). The song was written on a cheap acoustic guitar very much like the one Audrey Hepburn uses to sing Moon River in the film adaptation of the novella. Renaud Letang mixed this song with Jonathan Richman in mind. I now imagine Jonathan walking arm in arm with Holly in downtown Manhattan. This song would be a great soundtrack to their breakfast.”
Check out the track below.
