Lomography and YELLE are going bonkers, bananas, and completely crazy in preparation for the release of the upcoming album Complètement Fou.
YELLE is the French sensation that is taking the world by storm. This wacky electronic pop group had an unusual journey to where they are now. They took their time between neon-streaked albums, sung every fizzy song in their native tongue, poked fun at their peers, and stayed clear of trends.
Yelle’s new album, Complètement Fou, is transcendent with chopped rave keys, round sequencer blips, a might low-end kick, and playful effects à la Basement Jaxx. At the heart of Yelle today is the same spirit that brought the pair formerly known as Julie and Jean-François together, as great friends, in 2000. They initially called their project YEL — an acronym for “You Enjoy Life” — but the exuberant, feminized, Francofied shout they’ve taken for a moniker suits them perfectly. We yell when we are happy with the world and we yell when we’re pissed off at its ways. But we probably yell our best when we’re complètement fou.
Help Us prepare for the premiere of the new album by showing us your completely crazy photos. We want to see the same originality and brand of craziness that Yelle depicts! Have fun, and shoot like mad!
