“Pointless” the new single from French production duo, Duñe and Crayon, is a breath of fresh air. On the single (taken from their forthcoming, debut album, Hundred Fifty Roses) the duo shows incredible chemistry cooking up a jazzy instrumental that emits with warm glowing feel. Joining Duñe on the mic, French emcee Ichon adds a verse and while you may not speak the language, his deep voice and the french bars, only add to the luxurious feel.
The icing on the cake are the Alice Kong directed visuals, which actually star, Ichon. Like the song itself, the visuals are rich in color but still manage to grapple with the idea of vice and addiction and round out the fresh, out of the ordinary “Pointless” experience.
I always enjoy getting to explore music from other countries, and given the strength of this cut, I’ll definitely be checking out more from the duo, when Hundred Fifty Roses drops in April.
