In 2012, the Festival program for the free venue of the Café included six wicked French artists who were still relatively unknown. Since then La Femme, presented as “the future of rock” by Les Inrocks, has developed into one of the most exciting bands in France. After the success of Psycho Tropical Berlin - the revelation of Victoires de la Musique 2014 - the group made its triumphant return in 2016: an international tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the release of their second album, Mystère. In a studio improvised in a manor, the sextet concocted a soundtrack that reflects their personality: fanciful, exuberant, and sensual. Navigating between fizzy surf rock and cold wave that is less naive than it appears, La Femme sings of the end of summer (“Septembre”), disillusioned love (“Tueur de Fleur”), and hypochondriac interstellar dreams (“Mycose”).
