There’s very little known about La // Plage, a female-fronted four-piece hailing from Liège, Belgium. See a picture here. They’re called Flore, Nico, Loïc & Mike. Backgrounds? Forget it. There’s also a band called La Plage from Bruxelles, confusingly. But this La // Plage is drawing more attention, thanks to their wonderful single Rendez-Vous. They name Justin Timberlake and France Gall as influences, and kicked off with a great remake/remix of Phoenix’ Trying to be cool (arguably the best track on Phoenix’ last album). Rendez-vous is an English song, but there’s a little French lyric at the end – hopes are high for a full French track.
You know what they say, as a band you start by imitating your heroes, then find your own style. Now, of course, it’s just one single, but mon dieu, the future of La // Plage is so bright, I gotta wear shades.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.
