Yelle – formed in 2005 – is fronted and named by Yelle, nee Julie Budet, a sparky gamine with a deceptively demure schoolgirl voice.
She first arrived amid a flurry of 80’s inspired pop, with the likes of CSS and New Young Pony Club all revered for their take on brightly colored electro. Yelle stood out from the crowd with her wry, frothy and unashamedly fun outlook.
This infectious appeal propelled Yelle on the international map and stages around the world.
Yelle’s style is beyond any particular scenes, she’s found a unique pop voice without singing one word in English which speaks volume about her.
