Night in Camden (Barfly – La Femme)

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:

  1. French
  2. Snazzy dressers (of course)
  3. Serious
  4. Seriously fun


The music:

  1. Strange wave
  2. Pop synth
  3. 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.

About Hayles

Living in and loving London, I like to cram in as much as possible. I have a lot of different hobbies which I start on a whim and most of the time abandon for something else! My current interests include film, TV, music, comedy, art, photography, theatre and finding new yummy food establishments. Mostly I just love to experience the many joys and wonders that London offers. I started this blog to help me remember what I've actually done at the end of each year, but now I actually really enjoy writing and sharing what I hope is funny and/or useful information.
