"Big in Finland" may not have the same ring as "big in Japan," but Finnish quintet French Films is holding it down for Scandinavia with some serious post-punk attitude. New single "Latter Days" from its upcoming sophomore LP, White Orchid, begins with a tight bassline and ominous vocals before the organ hits, and an anthemic pop chorus rises from the darkness.
The video does a nice job mirroring the song's classically murky punk aesthetic, with lo-fi footage of the band exuding leather-clad retro cool, as it hangs out, jumps in the snow, and plays what looks like a righteous house show. Look for the band on tour later this year when it comes to American shores for the first time.
