French synth-rock duo Housse De Racket have released a cover of The Beach Boys’ track Till I Die. Watch the video for the song below.
“This song’s always been a mystery to us,” the duo says. “The chord progression is a symphony in itself. Brian Wilson at his best! …Two French guys from the suburb of Paris dreaming of California, landscapes & reverberation.”

For their sophomore album ‘Alesia,’ Housse de Racket teamed up with French super-producer, Phillipe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Rapture) to create a collection of eleven electro-pop songs in the vein of the bands’ own wide range of musical influences; from Ennio Morricone to David Bowie. Recorded half in French and half in English, ‘Alesia’ is a bold new direction for the bands’ follow up album to their debut, ‘Forty Love’.
