La femme (FR) @ Vooruit

 “Sur La Planche has shades of Stereolab and Ladytron, but also of UK new wave.”
- THE GUARDIAN: La Femme as 'New Band of the Day'

La Femme is a French band from Paris, Biarritz and Brittany. They already completed a crazy U.S. tour that should lead to a short film. They're now getting ready touring in Europe. Cool kids of 17 years old and more, that the record industry is already fighting to sign them behind the scene; which made their freedom, their most valuable asset. 

The electro music with pop melodies is in between the 80's and 90's. Their songs recall the Taxi Girl, the Drums, the Young Marble Giants as well as the early tracks of Diabologum. Their first EP called Le Podium no.1 (which the cover is a tribute to The Origin of the World by Gustave Courbet) has been released by the Third Side Records almost two years ago. Then they released another EP called Paris 2012 one year later.

Their album should come out in early 2013. In the meantime, they were playing for free at Vooruit last Wednesday. There was a really chilled atmosphere going on during the concert. La Femme played famous and unknown songs for a bit more than an hour (encore included) and everybody seemed to like it ;)
