We join Corduroy on the sixth floor of the Saatchi building
in London, filming the video for their forthcoming single 'Moshi
Moshi', a prime slice of deliriously funked-up Europop with a
distinct Japanese bent.
The year is 2005 and we have passed through a global telecommunications
revolution. The main tool of communication in this new world is
an audio-visual headset called a 'corduroy', and the standard
greeting is "Moshi Moshi". The look of the video is
clean and sharp, foreseeing a clinically efficient future. Look
out for the techno gizmos including a CD-player-cum-toaster, a
hover briefcase and - of course - the 'corduroy' itself.
'Moshi Moshi' is released on June 7th through Big Cat.
