Class Actress just released the beautiful new video for “Bienvenue.” The second clip from the critically praised debut album Rapprocher (out now via Carpark Records) was shot on location in Paris this past December and was directed by Clement Gino and Gregory Faure. Class Actress will return to Europe in late March following select North American dates between now and SXSW. See tour dates below.

Elle Magazine chatted with Class Actress creative voice and frontwoman Elizabeth Harper about the video, Parisian style, men and more. She notes: “Part of what Class Actress is about, to me, is the golden age of travel and what that time invokes: love letters, elegance, adventure, letting loose, loving life, feeling things rather than avoiding them. Paris is a city of senses and sensuality.” Read the full interview here:

Class Actress is Harper and producers Mark Richardson and Scott Rosenthal. The group’s sound has been described as “unabashedly slick electro-pop beats juxtaposed with coy, romantically depressed vocals courtesy of star-in-the-making Elizabeth Harper. (New York Magazine)” On Rapprocher–the follow-up to 2010’s Journal of Ardency EP–Harper’s secrets and Richardson & Rosenthal’s beats liberate the listener and freedom reigns on the dance floor
