“Comme un Enfant” – Yelle
It’s fitting that my last post in my early 20’s is called “As a Child.” This song is all about reminiscing childhood and teenage years. If you haven’t heard of Yelle yet, you really should. They’re a French electro-pop trio that are making waves in the states. I saw them in concert last week and was completely blown away. Not only can namesake Yelle (Julie Budet) sing, but she can dance and have FUN. We’re talking leopard jumper costume changes fun. Today’s track opens quite softly with about a 30 second lead, leaping into heavy synths and bird-like squawks. Once the bar is raised on energy, there’s another small break. This is where we come in, a little wind up and the high energy chorus. The energy of this song is infectious…I never want the dance party to stop!
