«Sunny French electro pop with clean lines and ice cream hooks» — New York Times
«Budet HAS true star energy who fires her fans into hours-long fests dance at her concerts » — SF Bay Guardian
French dance-pop purveyors Yelle-have recently returned with their long awaited second album, the exotically addictive Safari Disco Club (out now, V2 / Cooperative Music). Adding depth and experience to the sweet & sour pop cocktail found on their acclaimed 2007 pop-up debut, Yelle find themselves in a more reflective mood and have learned a few new tricks during their time off. The band have been keeping busy — they covered Robyn's «Who's That Girl» as part of the iTunes international exchange, and she covered their track «A Cause of the Boys» in return.
Katy Perry's «Hot N Cold», which was directed by Katy Perry and directed by Yelle. Deceptively demure schoolgirl voice. Joined by producers GrandMarnier (Jean-Francois Perrier) and Tepr (Tanguy Destable), Yelle first arrived amid a flurry of 80's inspired pop, with the likes of CSS and New Pony Club all revered for their take on brightly colored electro. Pop-up stood out from the crowd with its wry, frothy and unashamedly fun outlook. Mika, fashion designers, Jeremy Scott, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Brian Lichtenberg and Jean-Paul Lespagnard, a young Belgian Perez Hilton, Drew Barrymore and Jessica Alba.
If pop-up was a breakout set of fun-loving bawdy pop, Safari Disco Club is its sharper, wiser sibling. Sonically deeper, multi-layered, and emotionally more diverse, it defines Yelle's style and elevates them beyond any particular scenes to find a unique pop voice, Without singing one iota word about her.
Music truly does transcends all. It's an album that takes on a captivating journey, with as much ingenuity, beauty and mystery as Pop-Up had sparkle and fun.
