Yelle

French dance-pop purveyors Yelle have recently returned with their long awaited new single and album, Complètement Fou, released worlwide last month.

Fronted by sparky chanteuse Yelle, nee Julie Budet, with GrandMarnier (Jean-Francois Perrier) on production duties, Yelle first arrived amid a flurry of 80′s inspired pop and brightly colored electro. Complètement Fou retains pretty much everything fans have come to love in their two previous albums and with the added touch of LA-based producer Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Pink) and his team.

To get the party started here is an entrancing remix of “Complètement Fou” courtesy of former Yelle collaborator TEPR, who brings a slightly darker tone to the track. Enjoy!

LAST LYNX – BROTHER (Pop/Indie – Sweden)

Last LynxHaving already released two stunning tracks in 2014 (“Lacuna” and “Curtains”), one of Stockholm’s finest bands, Last Lynx return with their new single “Brother”, taken from their forthcoming EP Rifts.

Talking about the EP’s focus on relationships and love stories, drummer Fredric Lindblom says; ‘All the songs that ended up on the EP were written in a short period of time that gave them a certain sense of connection and theme. I guess that the song writing just coincided with a period in our lives when we were going through very similar emotions and were looping the same thoughts.

Last Lynx first came into the online consciousness with introductory track “Killing Switch”, which shot to #1 on The Hype Machine only days after its release. This was followed up by the Ocean Reels EP, which saw them working with engineer and mixer Lasse Mårten (Lykke Li, Peter, Bjorn & John…). On the Rifts EP, Mårten is still on as sound engineer, with the band’s very own Robin Eveborn on production duties. Rifts will be released on November 7th on Universal’s imprint SoFo Records.

OSCAR & THE WOLF – ENTITY (Indie – Belgium)

Oscar and the wolf (by Marie Wynants)Hailing from the northern city of Ghent, Oscar and The Wolf is one of the most promising new acts to come out of the Belgian indie scene. With a couple of EP’s under their belt and dozens of gigs in every corner of Europe, the band is ready to bring up their game with the release of their much anticipated debut album. Any number of adjectives could attributed to Entity but in essence the twelve tracks delve into band leader Max Colombie’s creative world of minimal moodiness, sensual synth pop and dark futuristic R’n'B.

Both musically and visually, the heart of Oscar and the Wolf is one Max Colombie who, having composed much of the album in his bedroom in Brussels then recorded in both London and in his native Belgium, overseen by the much lauded producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Jon Hopkins, Wild Beasts) who mixed the album. In Colombie’s own words, Entity is ‘one long serenade in which I try to express my desires and my view of things to a loved-one’.

Released in Belgium and the Netherlands last April, the album will be available in the rest of the world on October 13th but you can preorder it from your usual downloading platform. In the meantime you can grab two excellent remixes for free HERE and HERE.
