Electro-pop duo SACRE have created the music video for their track, ‘05:00AM JUNGLE CHASE’ which is taken from their forthcoming album, LOVE REVOLUTION, which will be part of SACRE’s exciting project that harnesses music, photography and storytelling. SACRE has already gained extensive support for their music from a host of tastemaker TV channels including Canal+ France, YouTube channel La Belle Musique, as well as radio stations such as Beats 1 and popular French station Radio FG and have collaborated and worked with top musicians such as Gigamesh, ELEPHANZ, CHOPSTICK & JOHNJON, Uppermost and Kraak & Smaak to name a few. SACRE has also garnered support from acclaimed publications such as HuffPost, Billboard, COMPLEX, CLASH Mag, EARMILK, Impose, Magnetic Magazine, Acid Stag, and many more. Currently, the pair sit at roughly 3 million plays across streaming platforms.
Originally from France but now residing in the creative hub of Amsterdam, musicians Hawaii and Sukil are the masterminds behind the intergalactic pop project that is SACRE. Both were the only musicians in their families growing up, but managed to pursue their dreams of a creative and musical life. Hawaii discovered his passion for music from listening to the Star Wars soundtrack when he was 8-years-old; it was from then onwards that he started to play, compose and hone his musical craft. Sukil started training at a classical music conservatory at the tender age of 6; 12 years after, she graduated and became a concert pianist. But it was only when Sukil teamed up with Hawaii that her own compositions were able to flourish, and the two embarked on their SACRE journey.
SACRE cite an eclectic mix of influences, when it comes to their style, that span across a variety of creative mediums; the duo are inspired by quality modern indie-pop artists such as Tame Impala, Jungle, iconic old-school acts like Rodriguez and The Beach Boys, experimental French electronic artist SebastiAn, avante garde filmmaker David Lynch, classical composer John Williams and fashion designer Iris van Herpen, to name a select few. As for their own sound, SACRE could best be compared to the likes of Møme and Le Couleur.
The tribalistic beat within ‘Jungle Chase’ finds its own form of synchronicity in the urban jungle in which the music video is filmed. The femininity found between some of the vocals and the lead roller skating dancer is contrasted by the masculine tone of the surrounding city, making no effort to hide the harshness of the concrete sprawl but rather revealing its own beauty behind it. The occasional lyrical “woop” paired with a skilful jump reveals the throughout editing behind the video while the casual flirty glances, thrown at the camera draw the viewer in.
SACRE reveal the deeper meaning behind the music video:
“It's a song about freedom, about the idea that the predator is no freer than its prey in its need to hunt. This music video follows the same idea. A prey is chased on the road. But who exactly is chasing her? We are in Los Angeles and we are following a girl.
Tired of the predators that touch her buttocks in the metro and tired of burning her neurons with other predators in traffic, she decides to live the city differently, freely.”
