Robbing Millions has finally released the video for the single “Have Tea” from the critically-acclaimed double-album Holidays Inside released in June.
The video is a funny and bizarre tour of Les Marolles which is one of the most authentic and old school neighborhoods in Brussels. The video also shows Lucien Fraipont impersonating a human teapot while wandering everywhere with his partner in crime, who is the mysterious tea seller “Monsieur T.” The music video was produced by Playtime Films.
“I had the idea to make a video starring myself and “Messieurs Delmotte”, who is a performer active in public spaces where he loves to practice his disruptive art, provoking little accidents in the public space. I had been spotting him walking around Brussels since my teenage years and always wondered who he was. I also wanted the video to take place in my beloved Brussels neighborhood, les Marolles, and wanted to depict the day of a misfit going through joyful and tragic situations in an economically impacted environment.” said Lucien.
A few fun facts about the video: The video does not feature even a single professional actor in the video. Lucien and Julien take the very same journey as the two characters in the video while looking for people who can be hired for the video from the neighborhood.
After Robbing Millions’ two EPs, and an eponymous debut album in 2016, the group’s members decided to go their own ways and Lucien traveled alone to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles he found a collaborator in Shags Chamberlain. The duo worked together on Holidays Inside for around eighteen months during multiple sessions in both Brussels and Los Angeles. It resulted in becoming a journey of tunes which have been inﬂuenced by Brazilian MPB, Wally Badarou, Italian progressive rock efﬂuves, and tracks also take cues from video game music.
