Yelle ‘L’Amour Parfait’

Published On February 5, 2013 | By Andrew Rafter | Premieres

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.
