Nicolas Godin: Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde
on 09 July 2015
For his first-ever solo album Contrepoint, Nicolas Godin (one half of veteran electronic music duo Air) takes inspiration from the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. The track "Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde" (translating to "stand steadfast against sin") uses the Bach church cantata of the same name as the foundation for Godin's illusory original composition. In the accompanying black-and-white music video shows (in the most poetic manner possible) zombie surfers catching waves and dancing around bonfires, to the soundtrack of Thomas Mars of Phoenix and Dorothée de Koon singing in German.
