Frànçcois & The Atlas Mountains shares new single 'Holly Golightly'

New album ready for February 26th

Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains is very happy to welcome 2021 with a new single, “Holly Golightly”. Taken from his forthcoming album, Banane Bleue -  due for release on 26th February - “Holly Golightly” is the second track to be taken from Banane Bleue, following first single, “Coucou”.

The track is named after the character in Truman Capote’s, Breakfast At Tiffany’s and touches upon the album’s key themes of romance and relationships in metropolitan cities. The accompanying visualiser features illustrations of Audrey Hepburn’s portrayal of the character.

Expanding on “Holly Golightly”, Frànçois notes:
“’Holly Golightly’ refers to the character in the Truman Capote novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Taken from the point of view of a writer fascinated by an endearing neighbouring friend, the narrator keeps his passion silent and writes letters instead ("crashing into the stationary"). The song was written on a cheap acoustic guitar very much like the one Audrey Hepburn uses to sing Moon River in the film adaptation of the novella. Renaud Letang mixed this song with Jonathan Richman in mind. I now imagine Jonathan walking arm in arm with Holly in downtown Manhattan. This song would be a great soundtrack to their breakfast."
