LA FÉ­LINE

TRI­OM­PHE KWAIDAN/K7, OUT 19 JAN­UARY

Q (UK) - - Q Review -

Chan­son meets elec­tro-pop on Gal­lic gem. La Fé­line is some­thing of a nov­elty in her na­tive France, where her in­sis­tence on singing her elec­tron­ictinged alt-pop in the na­tional tongue makes her the ex­cep­tion, not the rule. Once a trio, but now the sole pre­serve of Agnès Gayraud, La Fé­line draws lyri­cal in­spi­ra­tion from Greek gods and the hor­ror clas­sic Cat Peo­ple’s mus­ings on four-legged fur­balls and fe­male sex­u­al­ity. With her soft-spo­ken voice, she re­sem­bles a gen­tler Jane Weaver, shift­ing from the sup­ple but hyp­notic elec­tro-pop of Senga to the stalk­ing, omi­nous Trophée. Un­der­pin­ning it all, though, is a swirling grandeur that sug­gests Stere­o­lab are never far from her thoughts. A left-field gem. STEVE YATES
