Thursday 8th November: Well what to say about La Femme? They are quite unique, so it’s more difficult than I thought. Let’s start with a description of the band:
- Snazzy dressers (of course)
- Seriously fun
- Strange wave
- Pop synth
- Think B52s playing The Addams Family theme tune on acid…in French
I was introduced to them by my French friend and judging from the crowd, they are very popular within their home country and are perhaps on the cusp of breaking out into other countries now. All but one of their songs at the gig had French lyrics, but I tried to join in as best I could! “Francoise!”
They bring a very different sound amongst a heavily saturated electro-pop scene, enough to separate them as something ‘nouveau’ (French lyrics aside).
There is something mesmerizing about their show, you can’t help but get lost in their eccentric and hypnotizing stage presence. Of course, the best way to give you an idea about any band is for you just to listen to them for yourselves.
