Direct from the Parisian overground French pop connoisseurs La Femme will release new album Mystère on the world this September. Hailing from Le Pré Saint Gervais and Ivry-sur-Seine’s winding rues, 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.
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 – “are you ready to go out, under the threat of the town,” the lyrics translate. “You don’t want to give in and sometimes you need a bit of time to allow for your brain to take in the information and feel better about what’s happening,” they say.
