Yelle came to prominence when they posted an early version of the song "Je veux te voir" on Myspace in September 2005. The song's original title refers to Cuizinier of French alternative Hip Hop band TTC and charted at No. 4 in France. Yelle then began working on recording their debut album, Pop Up, in 2006. Arriving amid a flurry of 80's inspired pop, with the likes of CSS and New Young Pony Club all revered for their take on brightly colored electro. Yelle’s first album stood out from the crowd with its wry, frothy and unashamedly fun outlook. This infectious appeal not only led to work with Robyn and Katy Perry, but gained them fans in fellow musicians such as M.I.A. and Mika.
Their second song “A Cause Des Garcons” was released by music tastemaker and fashion label Kitsune, and inspired the great Tecktonik dance movement which went viral in Europe and eventually, across the world. Since then, Yelle have produced three highly successful chart-topping albums and have enjoyed a significant following overseas. They toured internationally in support of each of their album releases and remain one of the very rare French acts to have performed three times at Coachella. On tour with their latest sweet and soothing 2016 track “Ici & Maintenant (Here & Now)”, the band embrace their new state of mind of being simply and fully in the moment.
