28 years and 12 albums later Daft Punk have disbanded. Sad news for any music fan, a lightning bolt from the blue.
To announce it are themselves, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo with a video that breaks their silence on social media lasted 3 years.
An enigmatic 8-minute video taken from their 2006 film Electroma, sanctions their end.
It is Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo who sets the timer and triggers the bomb, after 60 seconds, Bangalter explodes.
Two writings: one is “epilogue”, the other is today’s date, February 22, 2021 that mark the end of an era, in 60 seconds we “lose” two great artists who have made entire generations dance, excite.
On an alternative version of “Touch”, a song from their most famous album, we say goodbye with a tear in the eye or maybe even more than one, two giants of electronic music that with their synthesizers and drum machines have given us moments of carefree.
