Hot on the heels of her highly-infectious debut “Fever Boy”, + her N. American tour announcement (supporting Charli XCX alongside Elliphant), FEMME returns with a new alt.pop gem titled “High”, the new single from the British artist, due out in North America this October.
Described as “a one-woman powerhouse” by Annie Mac, FEMME is a one-stop shop of creativity – writing, recording, mixing, producing & performing all of her tracks herself, + directing, producing & editing all of her own music videos. Taking inspiration from icons like M.I.A., Cindy Sherman + Debbie Harry, it’s FEMME’s combination of attitude, style &, above all, incredible tunes that makes her the perfect art-pop package that she is. Nowhere is this more in evidence than on “High”.
The catchy new track finds the fiesty avant-pop enthusiast at her best. Playful one minute, soulful the next, it mixes catchy keys into her trademark mix of beats & bass, with irresistible results.
Her debut album is scheduled for release in Spring 2015, be sure to catch her live on the road in N. America this fall (flyer above).

LA-based conceptual pop group YACHT, comprised of Jona Bechtolt + Claire L. Evans, is back with new music & news of their signing to Downtown Records. In a surprise gift to fans, YACHT have released their first new material since January’s “Plastic Soul” single, with new gem “Where Does This Disco?” arriving alongside a sparkling remix courtesy of Jerome LOL.
Where Does This Disco? ✖ buy
Fans can purchase the songs in a “special editioned object” throughout YACHT’s upcoming N. American tour with Burger Records’ White Fang, which includes 2 sold-out New York dates & kicks off this weekend in Denver. The duo explain the story behind the track:
“Where Does This Disco? is about love and compact discs. They’re both on the edge of becoming obsolete, and they both get scratched if you play them too hard. They’re both mirrors, but one is still the best medium we have for connecting with each other.
Where Does This Disco? is our first release on Downtown Records. It’s also the namesake for our upcoming North American tour, during which a special editioned object containing this song will be available for purchase. The remix is by the wildly talented Jerome LOL, one-half of DJ Dodger Stadium, and wholly from the Internet.”
