Paris-based La Femme was established in 2010 by Sacha Got and Marlon Magnée, releasing three EPs together ahead of their critically acclaimed debut LP Psycho Tropical Berlin (2013) which earned them the highly coveted Victoires de la Musique award. A second LP, Mystère,was released in 2016, which along with its predecessor was certified Gold in France.
The group’s new single and video, “Le Jardin,”is a track sung entirely in Spanish and the video is part of the band’s full-length film, which goes hand in hand with their third LP, Paradigmes.
“This record Is basically a bunch of songs that we’ve had for several years, it’s a melting pot of all the styles that we love and make us who we are.” The band tells Mundane.
On the other hand “Le Jardin” is “kind of an old-school slow dance which underlines how fate can be random and fragile,” the band explains.
“The moments we go through, sometimes very sudden, from shadows to light, and vice-versa. All of this, in a Romanesque scenery of the historic city of Sevilla, where the Holy Virgins are omnipresent on the walls, overlooking mankind and its madness.”
La Femme has toured extensively in the U.S., embarking on a nationwide DIY tour even before releasing their first album and going on to play festivals including ACL, Desert Daze, Voodoo Fest, Austin Psych Fest and more. Internationally, they have played major festivals such as Glastonbury, Sziget, Music Wins.
“Geography must be important to us because of the fact we travelled quite a lot over the last few years, and different places brought different inspiration to us,” the band explains, “We like the folklore of places and what comes out of them.”
Cool Hunting praises the title track’s “full of larger-than-life horns, celebratory melodies and an ear-worm chorus.” La Femme has also been featured in NPR Music’s New Music Friday Playlist and as KCRW’s Today Top Tune.
The group’s highly anticipated third album features previously released tracks “Paradigme,” “Cool Colorado,” “Disconnexion,” “Foutre le bordel,” “Le Jardin” and “Le Sang De Mon Prochain.”
