Watch Yuksek's Video For "On a Train"

Classically trained musician and electro-pop composer Yuksek (AKA Pierre-Alexander Busson) is about to invade the US, bringing a flurry of swooping, dance-pop anthems guaranteed to make you hum and sway. Hum and sway, hum and sway.
Empowered by his previous work with artists such as Chromeo and Amanda Blank, Yuksek's new album pushes our lovely Frenchman to the front lines, both as vocalist and leading a fierce live band.
On Living on the Edge of Time, he marries the distorted, saturated sounds of dance floor decadence for which he's known with a more melodic and catchy, and dare we say "pop" vibe. The first single is "On a Train," which you can watch here.
It literally takes place...on a train. We love traveling around foreign cities (or even cities in the US that we're visiting and are not super familiar with since we don't live there) on trains and public transit. It's really an organic way to soak in the culture, as well as the sights, sounds and smells of a region. This video captures that energy.
