Woodkid is about to be THE dude. Not only does he craft visually stunning music vidoes for the likes of himself, Drake, Lana Del Rey and others, but he's also the first person I can think of in the new millenium to harness the power of orchestration in such digestible pop tunes so brilliantly and on par with the classical arrangement structures we all grew up on. It doesn't hurt that his english is wrapped thickly in his french accent, or that his live show perfectly replicates the grandness you envision upon listening. Check out the video below, including a new track and then take a roadtrip to catch him at one of his three upcoming american tourdates.
11.01 - Irving Plaza (New York, USA)
11.02 - Bimbo's (San Francisco, USA)
11.03 - Luckman Fine Arts Complex (Los Angeles, USA)
