Yelle- Bouquet Final

Yelle has returned. The trio has left us waiting since her (their) sophomore album Safari Disco Club (though I guess L'Amour Parfait counts). SDC was one of my favorite albums from 2011. SDC's sound was more refined than Pop Up's. It seems that whatever is coming forward for Yelle is also more refined than their previous sound. 'Bouquet Final' is significantly more minimal than past tracks from the group. The track opens up quietly, glitchy and the lyrics are delivered in pronounced couplets of syllables. Yelle's signature electronic sound is surrounding and a somehow cathartic combination of hard hitting percussion, punctuated beeps and the overflowing wave of 80's-tinted synths. 'Bouquet Final' is much more subtle than a lot of other tracks that are close to my heart by Yelle. The danceable quality to their sound is still their, but more of a thoughtful, minimal sway.

Yelle is also going on a US tour this fall and her(their) 3rd album will be released this fall as well.
