Published Oct 25, 2012Aside from the sexy quietness of the Gos himself, one of the most attractive parts of Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 masterpiece Drive was the slick, '80s synth pop-indebted soundtrack. French act College (working with Electric Youth) were responsible for the hit "A Real Hero," and now we're happy to report that they're planning to give their debut album a physical release early next year.
According to a press release, the project, founded by French electro whiz David Grellier, has signed to Invada Records, lining up plans to issue debut album Secret Diary, along with the Teenage Color EP. Both releases were previously digital only, but they will be released separately on limited colour vinyl and together as a double CD.
In the press release, Grellier explained that he's inspired by "'80s soaps and an aesthetic which I particularly like: colour, images, silvery films and the sun — images of Los Angeles, Chicago and all other cities that continue to fascinate me."
Invada will drop both releases in February.
