YELLE has returned with a fantastic new song — “Top Fan.” The French synthpop band, consisting of Yelle and GrandMarnier, soon launches a USA tour that starts at 9:30 Club on Saturday, Feb. 25!

“Top Fan” is a brilliant, emotionally charged, banger of a song! The double vibe, in a typical YELLE-style, makes us want to dance while you can feel the depth of the message — even when you don’t understand the French lyrics. The music video gives us a clue: YELLE, the electro-pop French Queen, is now also a Mother.

Watch the official music video for “Top Fan” by Yelle on YouTube:

Yelle has been modernizing pop music for 17 years now. With four amazing albums, many world tours, some EPs and collabs and remixes, Julie Budet (Yelle) and Jean François Perrier (GrandMarnier) have never stopped moving things forward.

The duo’s fourth studio album L’ère du verseau (The Age of Aquarius), dropped in 2020, celebrated YELLE’s evolution with sophisticated style. It’s 10 tracks play in muted rainbows, digging deep into romantic chords and experimental techniques while exploring themes of sensuality and growth. It’s danceable and fun with all the verve of Yelle’s youth but with wisdom inspired by 17 years in the game.

Bred in the mid-2000s blogosphere, the French band’s primary color disco was impossible to ignore. Jean-François (GrandMarnier) Perrier’s gritty synths mixed with Julie (Yelle) Budet’s sunny cheers. The pair was joined by fellow producer Tepr on debut album Pop Up. The candy-colored collection was cocky, sexually-charged and ready to party. Language was no barrier for the infectious synth-pop hooks and eye-catching videos, and Yelle soon brought its buoyant party to stages around the world.

Heading headfirst into 2023 with a new song, the first after becoming a Mother, YELLE is ready to come perform live for us, heart and banging beats-first.
