Watch: “Code Zero

Inspired by the cinematic sounds of Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Soft Machine, Simon remembers recording soundtracks from TV movies so that he could listen to them later. Each song on this new album evokes a lived-in moment, relationship or experience during Simon’s childhood. Also featured on some of the tracks is Paris-based singer Sarah Rebecca from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Whether it was boating, walking around his city or climbing the Alpine mountains, Simon drew together all of his influences to what he calls “the power of music, the ability it has to make you enter a completely different world of reality.” French 79 is also the most synced artist on his label, with music in TV series Russian Doll, Gotham and Now Apocalypse, plus syncs with Red Bull, Jimmy Choo, Yves St Laurent and a massive Cadillac campaign out now.
