“La Nuit Sexuelle” directed by Charlotte Pouyaud.
The song title is a reference to french writer Quignard who believed that humanity’s greatest fear is not death, but genesis : in the single, Daisy Mortem releases this metaphysical anxiety. Visualised, it takes the form of a wild hunt in a dreamlike antiquity setting, a version with blurry loincloths and queer warriors. It’s also the last episode of a trilogy of music videos exploring the theme of cryptic mysteries, preceded by “Arêtes” and “L’accident est inévitable”.
Oscillating between rave parties and the goth scene, while experimenting and blending genres, Daisy Mortem was born in 2018 with the idea to create “the soundtrack of an erotic dream that ends in a nightclub massacre,” all sung in French. After having shared the stage with artists like Catnapp and The Garden, and going on tour with IC3PEAK and GFOTY, the duo has just released their debut album, “Faits Divers”, on the Berlin label Napp Records. The album is a futuristic soundscape laced with gabber, electro, trap, noise, or reggaeton, and punctuated by morbid lyrics with a sense of humor – very dark, obviously.
