Product Description

La Femme has no frontier, neither in her style nor in her voice. She's always on a quest for new sounds, images and sensations. Joined in 2010 by drummer Noé and female singer Clémence, La femme formed its first live roster in few days after French rider and artist Pandora Decoster asks them to play on stage for a big surf contest in Biarritz. From her hazy and changing background, La femme takes shape and release that same year its first anthem « Sur la Planche », a song that was made to be hummed and whistled while ridding a board. La femme uncovers, boys, girls, plenty of option, a bit of mystery, loads of energy.Later she released her second EP, Paris 2012. In the music video she produced for this song, she blows down the effeil tower as a symbol, it's time to go and see something else. After swilling Paris bars, La femme goes for a tour in USA, en mode journey, and come back in France with improved reputation where they play for various festival. Soon joined by fancy rhythm drummer Nunez Ritter Von Merguez aka « La Sauterelle » and gorgeous singer Clara Luciani, La femme takes for a ride around Europe : from beyond the grave to Berlin, by London, Bruxelles and Roubaix. Cryptic and Mysterious, La femme is in perpetual motion and the band, based around full time and up-to-date boys (Sasha, Marlon, Sam), invites over the course of its wish and needs in studio a whole cast of female singer : Clémence, Clara, Marilu, Jeanne... Sooner this year, La femme released a self titled EP, that went by along with a 11 minutes long psychedelic music video, an epic and baroque short film for tracks « La femme, Hypsoline », preceding the release of her first album in April : « Psycho Tropical Berlin »: It's the story of a couple who slipped chaos and survives by watching each other. Le Danger est partout - Peril is all around as written in the booklet. Rock and pop, rococo bahaus, fed from multiples influences (Krafwerk, Elli & Jacno) La Femme!

Format: Audio CD
If you'd asked me at the start of the year if my favourite album would be a french synth pop work, i'd have said probably not! It's hard to give a reference because there's little else i can think of that sounds too similar, maybe as this isn't my normal area of listening (which is more indie rock/folk). Last.fm says they're a "smooth/lead/tropical/surf/cold wave band from Paris." I have no idea what that means, hadn't heard of them before, they seem to be new to most outside France. All i can say is the cover gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect i.e. sexy and sinister. If you're open to genre-crossing foreign bands/lyrics (i have only some GCSE French and that's mostly gone too!) then give this a try. It's also a "proper album" in the sense that it needs to be listened through with headphones. My standout tracks though at Saises La Corde and Time To Wake Up (2023)... though most seem to prefer Sur La Planche and the title track. yes there's some English here too, but this isn't about lyrics anyway for me. A rare 5 stars: lots of fun, and quite sophisticated. Check out a track first because you'll probably like all of it, or none of it.

La Femme are a French electro-pop band who have delivered a thrilling debut album, full of life and passion.
I initially tried to list the musical styles and influnces to be found here. I failed utterly. All I will say is I am very much reminded of the sort of energy that The B-52s put into tracks like "Rock Lobster".
The songs whilst being catchy are also very dense and well made. Some of it drones and some of the electronica verges on the avant garde, but always underneath the tune. This is a superbly produced album.
Psycho Tropical Berlin is an intoxicating album that is more than anything... FUN! Take "Antitaxi" a relentless bounce of a song that was made for dancing to and gets the album off to a flying start.
A wonderful, smart, melodic, incredibly cool album. Highly recommended.

French, and very new wave.
You have to love electro pop to buy this album.
Texts are both dark and optimistic.
