New Music: Yelle “Ici & Maintenant (Here & Now)”

The world is a weird place. Tell me six months ago that I’d be receiving an email on my birthday from Yelle’s management sending me her latest track and I would’ve loled a little confusingly, in my head thinking you’re just being condescending. I remember having a fake ID at 17 and getting into 2007 Parklife to dance to Je Veux Tu Voir in a display of energy that was like a really touching, welcoming house party. Ici & Maintenant (Here & Now) is a slightly slower track from the French artist, but all the elements I’ve loved about her music - like the synthy-bells and the catchy-as-hell staccato melodies - are still very much there and as strong as ever. This track is like the first time you ever tasted passionfruit.
