French electropop band Yelle had a huge break with their debut album, 2007’s Pop Up. Thanks to vibrant singles like “À cause des garçons” and “Je veux te voir,” Yelle, also the stage name of their lead singer, Julie Budet, found a way to appeal to an audience way outside their origin country thanks to the universal language of dance. In September, they released their third album, the Dr. Luke–produced Complètement fou, which proves that, seven years since we were introduced to them, Yelle remain as colorful, appealing, and infectious as ever. You don’t need to understand French to understand that Yelle are a good time, but you should definitely work on how fluent you are in the language of fun — that’s all you need to communicate at this show.
