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

Banane Bleue (French for “Blue Banana”) is a nomadic and truly European record, hailing from rented workspaces in some of the continent’s key cities – Berlin, Athens and Paris – and recorded with instruments that were often borrowed from likeminded musicians.
Written solely by Frànçois Marry himself, close collaborator and Weird World artist Jaakko Eino Kalevi was enlisted for production duties whilst Renaud Letang (Feist, Gonzales, Connan Mockasin) mixed the album.
The title of the album is taken from the ‘blue banana’ concept, a geographical theory that groups together a corridor of Europe’s biggest cities, originally conceived in the 1980s. The theory states that the blurring of these cities’ boundaries has resulted in the formation of one massive, interconnected megalopolis.
Expanding on the theory, Frànçois poetised it, picturing a luminescent blue banana shape that you can see from space with vibrant, ethereal currents that surround and bind us.
