La Femme has today released their new single titled ‘Sacate La’. Proving that making a purely catchy song with substance is a global phenomena, La Femme deliver a most memorable song with said substance lying within the beat, rhythm, hook, and absolutely stunning vocals. The vocals, to me, stand out in a way that will have you join in. I have no other way to say it. This is actually a hook within a song. Think ‘Girl from Ipanema’ meets ‘Girl From Ipanema Goes To Greenland’. That catchy.
Following the success of their 2021 album Paradigmes, La Femme have been touring across Europe, wrapping their recent run of tour dates with a sold out show at the iconic venue Zenith de Paris. This new single release coincides with their long-awaited return to the US, where they will play 15 dates in North America.
A full list of those dates can be found below:
After releasing Paradigmes and the extended version Paradigmes : suppléments in 2021, La Femme just last week released their new Levitation Sessions (Live) album featuring performances of some of the big hits of the album including “Cool Colorado”, “Tu T’en Lasses”, and “Nouvelle-Orléans”.
You can see a video excerpt of that live performance below:
In April, La Femme also released Paradigmes: Le Film, a full-length film which highlights the band’s humor and creativity with delirious and campy visuals. Paradigmes: Le Film was directed by band leaders Sacha Got and Marlon Magnée along with Aymeric Bergada du Cadet.

La Femme is a French synth psych-rock band established by guitarist Sacha Got and keyboard player Marlon Magnée in 2010 in Biarritz. Featured musicians on “Sacate La” include Daniel Barda (flute), Stéphane Roger (drums), as well as Sacha Got on guitar, keys, bass, and percussion and Marlon Magnée on additional keys and bass.
La Femme’s 2013 debut album Psycho Tropical Berlin is a blend of synth-wave, surf rock, and cold wave; while the followup – 2016’s Mystère – hybridised elements of psych disco, Egyptian iconography, and intoxicating flavors of 90’s Motown hip hop. It’s music for the internet generation that draws on vintage and eclectic good taste, where music is turned into something ebullient and remarkable.
Those first two records are inescapable in record stores around France, where the band has built a massive following, but in 2021, La Femme returned with their third album Paradigmes, which saw the band’s reach and popularity spread worldwide. The album has amassed millions of streams, and saw coverage from outlets including Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Line of Best Fit, FLAUNT, Atwood Magazine, Cool Hunting, FLOOD, Northern Transmissions, American Songwriter, and many more.
Paradigmes offered listeners a shift in how La Femme see the world – a kaleidoscopic vortex to a different, more vibrant dimension. In this album made up of beautifully-curated electropop, you will hear everything from coldwave to yéyé, Kraftwerk to the Velvet Underground, all distilled and sequenced and psychedelicized into a sound that is unique to La Femme.
La Femme plans to follow up their run of North American tour dates with additional dates in France and the rest of Europe later this year.
