(Photo by Pierre Frigeni) Out via October Tone (France) and The Animal Farm (UK) is the all new single and video from the French (Strasbourg-based) Hermetic Delight: “Lust for Life”.
“Lust for Life” is the band’s third single in 2023 and is a hymn to the present moment. Or as the band says: “A rebirth, an awareness. A desire to get off the moving train. A revelation inspired by the blessings of a context we all had to face a couple of years ago.”
The video itself shows three souls stranded in a surrealistic setting from the 1970s. Laurens Saint Gaudens, the video director, adds: “The white light of the morning slowly breaks through; it gives the three exhausted bodies their vitality. A musical choreography animates them. They regenerate and regain their strength in euphoria. It is the scenery of a Chirico painting that comes to life.”
In just over ten years of existence, the band Hermetic Delight has already lived several musical lives. Over the course of its releases (three EPs and a first album released in 2020), the trio composed of Zeynep Kaya, Delphine Padilla, and Atef Aouadhi, has gradually enriched its post-punk sound signature with pop impulses and avant-garde music.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
