Yo, who ISN’T listening to lo-fi French surf music these days? I don’t surf, and I don’t speak French, but I love the sound of La Femme’s “Sur La Planche”. The band’s EP is out December 13th, and they’ll be in the U.S. for the next two months. Check it out.
As La Femme prepares to for their first U.S. gigs, the band remains an enigma. Hailing from Paris, the group walks the line between erotic avant-pop and lo-fi surf rock. Their music can be flippantly light-hearted or aggressively dark depending on their mood. The one thing is clear though: La Femme is part of the 2010s, a decade that has yet to be written.
