Ottawa duo Garçons gracefully toes the lines of multiple genres, including funk, soul & R&B, and their most recent single "Pedigree" pulls from strong Afrobeat influences are well.
Songwriter Deelo Avery explains that he drew inspiration from his Nigerian upbringing and love for Fela Kuti. "His music constantly played in my house, on the TV and everywhere on the radio. It runs in his blood, hence the name 'Pedigree," Avery said of the song and its inspirations to The FADER via email. "It was fun to start there with those elements of funk, jazz, and soul, and develop that into something with our own little original touch."
The video finds Deelo as a school's night janitor who finds himself in all sorts of shenanigans.
