New Yelle single

04/09/2014

Just sound, no video. But still. Album’s out later this month, and is produced by Dr Luke, the genius (well, according to some) behind hits of Katy Perry, Pink and Britney Spears. A thing that makes you go hmmm, hmmm?

Noémie

03/09/2014

unnamed

Noémie (no, not the singer of Hooverphonic) has it all: a sensual, husky voice not unlike that of Emilie Simon (listen to that little hiccup!), top-collaborators (Adrienne Pauly, Luce, Christophe, The Shoes’ Benjamin Lebeau) and a video with images from the movie L’Effrontée starring a young Charlotte Gainsbourg. Her EP’s out now, an album will be released later this year. Enchantée.

Vanessa Contenay-Quinones

01/09/2014

A new album’s coming up by one of the most gorgeous neo-yeye chanteuses, Vanessa Contenay-Quinones. The first single is a winner: fuzz guitars, tambourines, phat drums and that husky voice of V. Listen:

Clara Yucatan

22/08/2014

New kid(s) on the block: Clara Yucatan. From the homepage: ‘Clara Yucatan, c’est une fille, son frère et un chauve qui sourit/Clara Yucatan, c’est une voix, du groove et des claviers rafraîchissants.’ Well put. They released two EPs and an album in their three years of existence, quite impressive. This single does have nice claviers and a cool groove:

Also pretty nice, their L’Amour a la Plage cover:
