“Karaté” is taken from Yelle‘s upcoming fourth album L’ère du Verseau, out September 4.
Six years after their excellent record Complètement Fou, French duo Yelle (Jean-François Perrier aka GrandMarnier + Julie Budet) have finally announced the release of their fourth album. Following on from “Je t’aime encore,” a bitter love letter addressed to their home country, they’re now back with something totally euphoric. With its syncopated syllables and short sentences, the second single lifted from the album sounds a bit Japanese. It’s actually not a coincidence as it is titled “Karaté”. Like this martial art, it is definitely frontal and straightforward; everything we need at the moment. Listen below and pre-order the album.
