Veteran rockers French Kicks are pillars of reliability. It’s hard to believe that this band has been churning out their infectious brand of indie rock for over a decade, and even more impressive to see that they never really had a ‘down’ album.
“Sex Tourists” from their 2008 album Swimming, was recently featured in Seeking A Friend For The End of the World, the new film by Lorene Scafaria starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. If Scafaria’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she also brought us Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, another quirky/funny/heartfelt movie with great music. We can’t give away the scene the song is in without spoiling the movie a bit, but let’s just say that the song plays during an appropriate part of the movie (think the song title). Check out the trailer above and when you see it at theaters, be on the lookout for French Kicks.
