La Femme live in Athens
Saturday 2 September 2017
Technopolis City of Athens, Kerameikos
Get ready to get crazy for LA FEMME!
The Sassy Surfer Band from France!
Direct from the Parisian overground, French pop connoisseurs La Femme have made a huge mark on modern Paris’s cultural landscape, by engraining in their music the two sides of the city: the glamour and the grit.
Joined by his compadre Marlon Magnée (keyboard player), Sacha Got (guitarist) started La Femme
in coastal town Biarritz before the pair moved to Paris where they met up with Sam Lefèvre (bass guitarist), Lucas Nunez (percussions) and Noé Delmas (drummer), also seeker of teenage kicks.
From La Femme’s fluid line-up and travels comes their debut album Psycho Tropical Berlin (2013); a mille-feuille of psychedelia, rockabilly, electro, and punk infused surf. Written within the depths of a Parisian basement and surrounded by sheep and trees at a house in Biarritz, those contrasts are clear. After three years they return with a more psychedelic sound and numerous female guest vocalists that slice through the starkest of electro beats. Τheir second album Mystère (2016) is a compendium of short stories describing loves and losses while each song breaks down language barriers through an inventive and astute knack for melody. La Femme celebrates their wonderful city and tackles the enigmatic questioning of falling in and out of love.
Their rise has continuously gained momentum with fans including directors Jacques Audiard and Romain Gavras to legends Jean Michel Jarre and Hedi Slimane as well as a growing young audience. Their music was also used for three major worldwide TV synchs: Apple, Renault and Sonos which have brought them great attention.
At times synthetic, always hypnotic, and turning on a centime from aggressively dark to flippantly light-hearted,
La Femme has one goal: “To touch people, to be touched by people and generally protest against worldwide assholes.”
