La Femme have returned with news of their first album in nearly five years, Paradigmes, and have unveiled "Foutre le Bordel" as the lead single.
The track title loosely translates to "to make a mess" or "to wreak havoc", and is teamed with an animated video by the band.
La Femme say of the track, ""Foutre le Bordel" is the first fully animated video we create[d]. We have always been attracted by graphic arts. Originally we wanted to join art schools but none of them accepted us! Over the years, we have drawn lots of our visuals: artworks, t shirts, clothes, fonts."
The band add, "Last spring, during the first lockdown, we thought it would be the best moment to start this animated drawings project, as we had so much free time in front of us. We think it reflects well the image of La Femme and we are happy we finally managed to do it with this particular fast and nervous track, which is made to revitalise a party at any moment! The kind of song that we look forward to playing on stage!"
La Femme's new album Paradigmes will follow their 2016 second album Mystère, and marks the band's first self-produced record.
