La Femme live in Athens

Saturday 2 September 2017

Technopolis City of Athens

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.”

Forest Swords, aka acclaimed Merseyside-based producer Matthew Barnes, returns with his eagerly anticipated new single 'The Highest Flood', out via Ninja Tune.

One of Barnes' most urgent tracks to date, layering a thumping, staggered, skeletal beat with deconstructed piano fragments and a hook that sculpts choral samples into a rapturous battle cry. Veering between claustrophobia and euphoria, Barnes continues his bleeding of the line between sorrow and ecstasy, and with 'The Highest Flood', the first taster of his new material, there's a new-found, raw sense of immediacy.

"It's a challenge to navigate the world we're living in now and I've been thinking a lot about the ways we need to forge new paths in language, communication and our connection with the natural world – it's becoming more and more important to try and steer these in a positive direction" says Barnes of the track. "'The Highest Flood' distills some of the frustration and hope that I've been working through over the past 18 months whilst making new material.”

The single is the long awaited first studio material since 2013's critically lauded debut album “Engravings”. Over this period Barnes has devised, scored and art directed last year's contemporary dance piece ‘Shrine’, composed for the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ video game, collaborated with Massive Attack on their new music and soundtracked the first movie made entirely with drones - 'In The Robot Skies’ - which debuted at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival.
