“A woman in a pale raincoat mysteriously emerges from an underground car park. She brings a song, with the word “latche” (slang for shame) in it…”
LA FÉLINE‘s new single PLACE DE VERDUN, which was released on June 22, is a mixture of alternative French pop with experimental elements, carried by a rhythm that approaches Afro beats but still remains discreetly in the background. In the foreground are the bitter-sweet-smooth vocals and the bass playing of the artist, who knows very well how to pick out individual elements from a large assortment of diverse styles and mix them into her very own signature and to provide them with skillful wordplay in her native language.
