Foreign Gems: France

France. The country known as the city of love and for the Eiffel Tower, eating snails, and baguettes. What you may not know about France is that it is an incubator for unique musicians and bands whose songs are chalk full of creativity.

Without further ado, below is a list of songs that I am sure you will enjoy.

Nous Étions Deux // La Femme

 

La Femme is definitely high on my list of the most eccentric bands. They’re a psych-punk band and have created many catchy hits to aggressively dance and bob your head to. I was lucky enough to see them at “Beach Goth 2016,” and let me tell you, us U.S. folks were not worthy of their godly performance.

 

Le Temps De L’amour // Francoise Hardy

A classic to those who have watched Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Le Temps De L’amour” has been the theme song to all of our youthful romances. Francoise Hardy’s music is incredibly soothing to the ear, so I suggest listening to all her songs while you’re studying.

 

L’amour À Trois // Stereo Total

I admit, this song is a little weird and has some questionable noises in it… but it works, doesn’t it? Technically, Stereo Total is a German-French band. If you’re into quirky electro-pop, this is the band for you!

 

Je Suis Malade // Lara Fabian

This is my GO-TO song if I want to feel dramatic and drown in my sorrows. “Je Suis Malade,” is a powerful song written by Fabian about heartbreak. Fabian’s song truly makes me want to break out into an overly dramatic contemporary dance.

 

Anyways, that’s all I have for today! Next week I’ll be highlighting some foreign gems from Japan!
