La Femme have returned with their new single “Paradigme.” The track is off the French Psych-pop band’s forthcoming release (details TBA). Comprised of Sacha Got, Marlon Magnée, and Sam Lefèvre, this is La Femme’s first release since their 2016 LP Mystére. “Paradigme” has all the elements behind the band’s signature sound: overpowering melodies, nonchalant vocals, old school brass arrangement, and an irresistible chorus. The single is released via the band’s label Disque Pointu, distributed worldwide by IDOL. La Femme have played Glastonbury, Desert Daze, ACL Festival Texas, Psych Fest, and have toured with Mac DeYellow Days Collaborates With Mac DeMarcomarco, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Primal Scream, and Air, among others.

Formed in 2010, the then unknown band hoodwinked the French music industry by lining up a DIY US tour with only $3,000 and an EP. After playing 20 gigs around the US, La Femme returned home with immense interest from the Parisian music scene. “The industry was like, ‘What the fuck? They have an EP out and they are touring in the US and we don’t know them?”
