Yelle ‘L’Amour Parfait’

Published On February 5, 2013 | By Andrew Rafter | Featured Artist

French pop band Yelle, (Julie Budet) and GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier) are back with a new song, and presumably a new album. They grabbed the headlines a couple of years ago with there unique brand whimsical urban pop thanks in part to tracks like ‘Safari Disco Squad’ & ‘Que Veux-Tu’ all sung in Juliet’s native French.

While some of Yelle’s previous work is more flamboyant pop, “L’Amour Parfait” isn’t. It’s been produced by GrandMarnier & Aeroplane and is a much darker palette, with strong electronic and hip hop influences. It’s pretty hard to put into words, but it’s that kind of forward-thinking European pop that The Knife have been making for years. It’s quite brilliant.

Out February 11, with remixes from Baadman, The Phantom, Ruben Mandolini, Sticky K.

    That start vocal takes a bit of getting used to, but then it just kind of works. Bit of a ‘Goin In’ vibe to it.
