Chateau Marmont Releases "One Hundred Realities" Video, Prepares for North American Touring Debut

arisian synth-pop four-piece Chateau Marmont will be making their North American touring debut down to this year's SXSW, with stops in Chicago, NYC and Canada along the way. In support of their upcoming dates Pthey've released their "One Hundreds Realities" Video and mp3.

Chateau Marmont (Guillaume De Maria, Julien Galner, Angy Laperdrix, Raphael Vialla) are known for their remixes ofLa Roux, Heartsrevolution, Ladyhawke, Röyksopp, but the visual representation of their music is equally noteworthy. Their "One Hundreds Realities" video is a black and white geometric playground that plays tricks on space and perspective. The first frame starts with a sphere finding its way into endless portals and possibilities, as each frame that follows unravels into an unexpected optical allusion. Animated and directed by Japanese artist Shinya Sato, this other-worldly video offers the same dreaminess and intricate layering of the "One Hundred Realities" track.

The band is also releasing a combined LP of their previous Solar Apex EP and Nibiru Remixes, called 2008-2009-2010. Be sure to catch Chateau Marmont at one of their performances leading down to SXSW!
