Conceived whilst sipping schnapps on the Swiss slopes of St.Moritz, electronic duo Private Jetlag have shared visuals for their debut single ‘Apres Ski’. The pair recently signed to eclectic indie label Cool Thing Records, and are set to cause a stir with their tongue-in-cheek, funky sounds.
With a name that evokes the “neo yuppie hedonism” of the 1980s, Private Jetlag are formed of “Franco Bombastico” (bass, keys) and “The 4tunetellah”(vocals, keys), who are both writers and producers. Inspired by everything from Dr Dre to Hall & Oats, to ski culture; the pair have blended humour and catchy beats to create a tune brimming with shabby romance.
The accompanying video to ‘Apres Ski’ shows the duo donning ski masks and tracksuits, and is shot in a grainy DIY video camera style. It’s a perfect reflection of their light-hearted but polished approach to producing music.
