French Duo PNL Releases New Visual For “Deux Frères” (Two Brothers)

French “Cloud Rap” duo PNL releases new visual for single, “Deux Frères” (Two Brothers) off their album of the same name.

Two brothers (Tarik and Nabil Andrieu, aka Ademo and N.O.S.) that flipped European hip-hop on its head share the second music video off their new album. Following up on their groundbreaking visual for “Au DD” which is said to be the first ever filmed inside of the Eiffel Tower PNL drops “Deux Frères”, a portrait of their French upbringing.

The seven-minute video is extremely autobiographical. It tells the story of when the brothers left Gagarin in Ivry in 1995 to settle in Tarterêts, in Seine-et-Marne. “Deux Frères” transitions between scenes of drugs, project hallways, and violence which reminds viewers of what PNL has overcome.

Comparable to the previous music video “Deux Frères” explores PNL’s journey from selling drugs in Paris to evolving into rap superstars.The song continues to highlight PNL’s signature “cloud rap” sound; immersive, deep, subtle, and laced with melodic flows and narratives from within Paris’ subcultural underbelly.

The visual has surpassed 7.4 million views on YouTube. Booska-P writes, “PNL brings us back to the years when its members squatted the hall and roamed the asphalt of a city now deserted and doomed to destruction.”

With the growing success of the new album PNL sets the stage to ascend further from France’s homegrown heroes to renowned household names worldwide.

“Deux Frères” is available now on YouTube and can be streamed or purchased here. Their album Deux Frères is available now. For updates and more information about PNL please refer to the social media links below.

French Cloud Rap Duo PNL Debut Their New Album “Deux Frères” (Two Brothers)

French cloud rap duo PNL debut their new album Deux Frères (Two Brothers). The album is a follow up to their diamond certified 2016 project Dans la légende (In The Legend).

Following up on their landmark sophomore album Dans La Legende, Deux Frères showcases PNL’s creative depth. It’s their fourth album spearheaded by the breakout single, “Au DD” which is said to be the first ever filmed inside of the Eiffel Tower. The self-directed video features PNL using the iconic monument as their HQ, filling the visual with grandiose aerial shots of the group from within the tower’s unmistakable structure.

“Au DD” explores PNL’s journey from selling drugs in Paris to evolving into rap superstars.The track marks a progression in PNL’s signature “cloud rap” sound; immersive, deep, subtle, and laced with melodic flows and narratives from within Paris’ subcultural underbelly. Clash writes, “every bit as immersive as the cloud rap sound that propels them, the murky production for ‘Au DD’ is literally placed in the sky as PNL scale the historic tower.”

The visual has already surpassed 39 million views on YouTube and Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Virgil Abloh has collaborated with PNL’s own QLF brand for a special capsule collection for his Off-White label, modeled by the brothers within the visual. Integrating the brand’s own iconography with PNL’s logo, the partnership marks one of many instances in which French rap’s most culturally important act have been cosigned on an international stage.

The 16-track album features introspective tracks like “La Misère Est Si Belle (Misery Is So Beautiful)” which was highlighted by The Guardian in their review of the project.

“It’s an unprecedented level of vulnerability for PNL: on previous albums, they would use Disney characters to more subtly allude to loneliness and loss. This time, they couch darker themes still – resentment, anger, revenge – in references to classic video games and sci-fi.”

Deux Frères is available now across all major streaming services.
