Direct from the Parisian overground, French pop connoisseurs La Femme released their new album Mystère worldwide last September. Hailing from Le Pré Saint Gervais and Ivry-sur-Seine’s winding streets, La Femme have made a huge mark on modern Paris's cultural landscape, with the two sides of the city – the glamour and the grit – engrained in their music. Mystère reached the second place of the French digital charts, the 8th place of the overall French charts, and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the French Music Awards 2017. Ever since the release of their debut album Psycho Tropical Berlin,that topped the French digital charts and saw the band appear on national television as the Best New Band of the year at the French Music Awards, their rise has only gained momentum with fans.
Returning with a more psychedelic sound and a range of guest vocalists that slice through the starkest of electro beats, Mystère sees La Femme celebrating all that’s wonderful about their city. From the chattering tête-à-tête heard on "Conversations Nocturnes" that leads into the throbbing disco beat of "SSD" – a direct reference to the pulsing nightlife hotspot and multi-cultural district Strasbourg Saint Denis where the band continue to work and play equally hard.
After supporting Red Hot Chilli Peppers for 12 shows of their Arena Europan tour in October 2016, La Femme will continue spreading their French words with energy, style and passion this Fall throughout the North American Tour.
“Slow down, take it easy, put Mystère on the record player and allow yourself to be taken far away...” they say. Liberté, égalité, fraternité. Everyone can be a part of La Femme’s world – and it has never felt more alive.
La Femme in the press...
The Quietus says, ..."their sound their sound is multifaceted, kaleidoscopic and at times psychedelic. Nevertheless, it’s infused with a motorik energy that propels it onward and upward. There’s nothing dour about their approach, which is certainly the case for all to see in the live arena."
The Guardian calls La Femme "alluring french indie pop...an alluring grab-bag of styles, from synthpop to surf-rock to Stereolabish indie motorik, to near-baroque guitar picking, to faux-Morricone western soundtracks, to an almost pastoral psychedelia."
French surf-noir band LA FEMME announces their upcoming Fall AMERICA TOUR today via Brooklyn Vegan. The tour includes stops at ACL Fest in Austin, Desert Daze in Joshua Tree, and Voodoo in New Orleans, along with Los Angeles (9/12), San Francisco (9/14) and others. The tour kicks off at El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City on October 3rd.
