Bay Area Rock Band French Cassettes Arouse in “Medium Horny”

Performing in D.C. with Moozy at Comet Ping Pong on Sept. 27

Today, Bay Area indie rock band French Cassettes premiered the music video for their latest single, “Medium Horny” via Flood Magazine. Next week, the band kicks off their U.S. tour dates with a performance at Comet Ping Pong in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.

Directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker and actor, Syra McCarthy, the music video explores the concept of “‘happiness capitalism” marketed to guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Lorenzo Scott Huerta dispensed by an alien being; a concept inspired by a recurring dream McCarthy experienced as a child.

Discussing the sound and feel of “Medium Horny,” Lorenzo Scott Huerta stated, “The song started as just finger shapes I liked the look of on my guitar. But truth be told the inspiration is split into 4 of my favorite songwriters. The first verse is Johnny Marr, middle section is Jeff Lynne and Bill Evans, the outro is Elliott Smith. I’ve never heard a full Evans song in my life… I don’t think, but I’ve heard he does ‘chord solos’ and I loved that idea so I wrote a guitar solo of just strummed chords.”

French Cassettes made their East Coast debut this Spring, which included a performance at the New Colossus Festival in New York City. Since the release of their acclaimed sophomore album Rolodex in 2020, the band has continued to win over the hearts of fans and critics alike. Their 2021 single, “Good For It” and 2022 single, “On/Off” (the music video for which featured actor and stunt performer Johnny Knoxville), highlight how the French Cassettes’ strategy of merging memorable tunes with synergistic collaboration appears to be more than effective.

Washington D.C. indie-rock band Moozy provides support for French Cassettes when they perform at Comet Ping Pong on September 27. We promise this is a match made in heaven, but don’t take our word for it; check out the newest Moozy single, “Minnesota Seems Nice.”

“Medium Horny” is available now on major streaming platforms like YouTubeSpotify, and Apple Music.
