Since 2007, French electro-popper Yelle has risen to be a leading lady in the world of European pop music.
With a keen interest in fashion and feel for popular culture, she's been able to take her quirky sound from her French roots to the world at large, playing some of the biggest festivals and farthest flung cities.
It is hard to think of another current artist who has managed to go global, the way Yelle has. Having already released two albums - Pop Up and Safari Disco Club - and performed countless live shows around the world, all the while singing in her native French language. Yelle's beautifully melodic compositions translate regardless if fans have any idea what she is actually singing about.
"I don't know what you mean but it means a lot to me," the catch phrase from her 2013 song "L'Amour Parfait," is quite the perfect summary for Yelle who has that certain "je ne sais quoi" you won't be able to escape.
2014 will see her return with a third album, which she's recently been giving fans a glimpse of at select shows and festivals. Her yet to be announced new album is due for release this fall on Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records.
