Published Apr 01, 2010Formerly dubbed Poney Poney, Frenchmen Antoine Hilaire and Flo Lyonnet have taken on the new band name of Jamaica. And to go along with the new moniker, they've also given us some new tunes by way of the single "I Think I Like U 2."
The slick, hooky and very European track comes from the popsters' upcoming, as-yet-untitled debut full-length, which is being produced by Justice's Xavier de Rosnay and Daft Punk sound engineer Peter Franco. The album isn't due out until August, but the sweet-sounding "I Think I Like U 2" can be downloaded over here for the price of an email.
There's also a pretty hilarious video for "I Think I Like U 2," which is directed by Ed Banger artist-in-residence dude So-Me. As the press release states, "His brilliant idea was to structure the video relaying the band's history from A to (fabricated) Z. The video follows the musicians from their modest beginnings and the formation of the band through JAMAICA becoming an overwhelming international success to their fall into psychedelic trips and eventually jail."
