"Simian" is an English electro-rock band, best-known for their song "La Breeze", which was featured in the Peugeot 1007 commercial. The members are Simon William Lord, James Ellis Ford, Alex MacNaghten & James Anthony Shaw.
The band split up in 2005 with Ellis Ford and Shaw forming a splinter group Simian Mobile Disco.

This single was credited to Justice Vs Simian and started life as an entry in a remix competition that French dance duo Justice had entered.
