Ottawa duo, Garçons, define a funky sonic aesthetic of soul, R&B, and tempo-Afrobeat rhythms. Comprised of singer/songwriter Deelo Avery, and producer/director Julian Strangelove, the pair began their shared musical journey in the summer of 2017. Since then, le garçons released their debut EP "Body Language," along with "Pedigree," a single from their forthcoming EP.

Today, Garçons share the second single from their upcoming sophomore EP, "Froggin," with a bizarre yet enthralling video visual. Inspired by films like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the video captures beautiful shots of pure light-heartedness.

"The energy of the song reminded me so much of those insane drug stories in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, so the idea for the video was obvious right away, especially being a massive Hunter Thompson fan. I love the way Terry Gillam directed the movie, so a lot of the music video was a tribute to his work." Strangelove explains, "We wanted to shoot the video in Vegas, but the circumstances we would [have] had to overcome in order to do that were impossible, so we found ways to work with what we had in Canada. Shooting videos without a budget can be frustrating, whether its broken promises, asking for favors, or dealing with police— there are always obstacles, but they force you to be more creative with your ideas. I think that's the true beauty of this video."
