France is certainly not the first place I would expect surf rock to be coming out of but then again, I have been known to be wrong. Case in point, La Femme have an EP out titled Le Podium #1 which features bossy bass, drum-beat, theremin-infused guitar distortion and a cute-souding French girl commanding the vocals. [via] Below, we have the track “Sur La Planche” for you to check out, which loosely translates to “on the plate.”
In case you are not fluent in French, here are the translated lyrics to “Sur La Planche”:
“On a surf board / on the beach, on the wave, I’m searching for sensations / on a surfboard, in the tubes, I’m searching for sensations / you better not try and stop me from riding that wave, I’m invincible / if you dare push me in the tube, I will be waiting for you on the beach, on the wave” – La Femme, “Sur La Planche” [via No Modest Bear]
You can grab all of the Le Podium #1 EP over at bandcamp.
