Nous y sommes, c’est aujourd’hui que sort “Save the Day” le nouvel EP de College! J’étais vraiment très impatient de vous présenter ce travail car ce disque est, une nouvelle fois, une belle histoire de rencontres et d’échanges artistiques passionnants. Une collaboration inédite avec Nola Wren tout d’abord, une talentueuse chanteuse et songwriter américaine dont vous devez absolument aller découvrir le travail ici. Ensemble, nous avons signé ce single hanté par l’urgence et les ténèbres… Pour l’univers graphique, j’ai encore une fois souhaité travailler avec Alexander Burkart qui a su comprendre et enrichir ma référence aux grands thrillers US de la fin des années 70. Et enfin Jay Buim, mon ami réalisateur qui soutient Valerie et notre mouvement depuis le début (il a produit notre premier 7inch The Outrunners/ College avec Freedanger en 2007) qui a dirigé le fantastique court métrage qui illustre à merveille le cauchemar imaginé avec Nola Wren pour le titre Save the Day. Vous pouvez donc découvrir dès aujourd’hui cet EP en digital, en attendant une édition collector vinyl du single qui sera limitée à 300 exemplaires et disponible sur le shop de Valerie à partir du 1er décembre!

At last the day has arrived – the new EP from CollegeSave the Day” is out! I’m really happy to be able to present this work because, once again, it is a great story of exciting artistic encounters and exchanges. Firstly a unique collaboration with Nola Wren, the talented American singer and songwriter whose work you must see here. Together we created a single, haunted with urgency and darkness … For the artwork, I chose to work with Alexander Burkart again who was able to perfectly understand and translate my reference to the great US thrillers of the late 70s. And finally Jay Buim – my friend and a director who has supported Valerie and our movement from the beginning (he produced our first 7inch The Outrunners / College with Freedanger in 2007) – who directed the fantastic short film that epitomizes the nightmare Nola Wren imagined for the title track “Save the Day”. You can enjoy the digital EP today, pending a vinyl collector’s edition single which will be limited to 300 copies and available at the Valerie shop from December 1st!
