YELLE: Complètement Fou
Complètement fou! Now for those not well versed in the language of l'amour this phrase may not mean much, so please allow me to translate. The rough American equivalent is bonkers, or if you find yourself in London, absolutely nutters.
The phrase, in two words, describes the gleefully mad electronic pop of Yelle - vibrant, irreverent, and completely off the wall brilliant – not to mention the group’s unorthodox rise. Yelle has taken their time between neon-streaked albums, continued to sing every song in their native tongue, poked fun at their peers, and refused to be sucked into passing musical fads. “We just do things we love,” says Yelle, née Julie Budet. “This is the only rule we have. At the end of the day this is what makes Yelle: Spontaneity.” Nearly a decade after forming that determination to stay true to YELLE has paid off. They'll be releasing a third LP on September 30th, produced by none other than Dr. Luke and will be released via his own label Kemosabe Records. "Complètement Fou" is electronic pop perfection, encapsulating YELLE's cheeky ethos and unescapable energy in one dance genre blurring package.
