“Bunga Bunga”off Forthcoming LP Freudian Slip
or…Berlusconi Fiddles While Rome Burns
“Bunga Bunga” is the band’s homage to the Motown classic “Dancing in the Streets,” and singer Céline Dijon brilliantly weaves together the world’s capitals, including some one might not expect, reminding the listener with each chorus that “on fait le Bunga Bunga” (everyone is doing the Bunga Bunga). From the opening stanza, it’s clear that Dijon’s ingenious conceit is laden with social and political subtext and allusions to current events.
Nous Non Plus rose from the ashes of the NYC faux-French band Les Sans Culottes. Though the band members now all live in different cities from Paris to Los Angeles, they reconvened in Austin, TX to record the bulk of their third studio album Freudian Slip. Working with legendary songwriter/guitarist David Garza and Julien Galner (of Chateau Marmont), the band mixed programmed loops with live drums, and moog synths with layered vocal harmonies to create their textured pop sound.
