Purple Sneakers Presents: Yelle Australian Tour
Born and raised in Brittany, France, Yelle is known for her spirited, explicit lyrics, laid over booty-shaking pop electro beats by producers GrandMarnier and SiriusMo.
Yelle grew up with music, her dad being a famous musician in the Côtes d’Armor region, where she still lives today. She played the piano, then went on to acting, and played in a few bands that never made it past the rehearsals, but whatever: she knew she was a born performer.
Yelle writes songs about smaller breast sizes, lesbian temptation, dildos, sex and jogging and her shows bring the party like no other (so don’t wear white). Yelle may be young and pretty but she is also a very explosive character igniting a slightly rigid French pop scene. This stage freak with a unique flow is fully driving the new non-aggressive girl power scene, focusing on delivering kick-ass lyrics. She also doesn’t take herself seriously and is refreshingly laidback, especially when she proudly covers the song “A Cause Des Garcons” (“What We Do For Boys”) a French ‘80s anthem.
Also playing at Splendour In The Grass, the Yelle live experience will be just the antidote to all of the seriousness going on around the time. We look forward to dancing and spilling beer on each other with you.
