Husband and wife duo Laura & Anton had spent years releasing ambitious, creative records in relative obscurity with their experimental pop act Foxtails Brigade when one day they released a simple, home-recorded live video of the old french chanson, “La Vie En Rose”.

The video went viral, garnering millions of views on youtube, and suddenly Laura & Anton were an international act, being flown around the US, Europe and Asia for live appearances, including a cameo in an Alec Baldwin film.
