Following the advance teaser, Bouquet Final, Complètement Fou is the first proper release from the forthcoming album of the same name from French ElectroPop trio Yelle. The band’s third album is released at the end of next month, The album has been coproduced by ubiquitous US producer Dr. Luke, and, more than with Bouquet Final, it shows on this lead single.
With a nice line in 90s Pop-House keys and pounding dancefloor drums, Complètement Fou still retains many of the French Electro tropes that we love Yelle for, and Yelle herself lets her personality shine though as always. Whether these elements are straining not to get lost in the shiny American Pop is a question we’ll consider when we get to hear the whole album. So far though, we’re enjoying the singles. Personally, we think Yelle would probably be better off without Dr. Luke (as anybody would!), but we’re still kinda excited to hear the album in it’s entirety.
