CONTEST – Yelle "Je Veux Te Voir" 12"
I don’t speak French, so I have no idea what Yelle is singing on her debut record Pop-Up but I don’t need a French-English dictionary to translate the squelchy ’80s-approved synths that form its musical foundation. In any language, they mean fun, and if there’s any lingering doubt as to the interpretation then then technicolour costumes and visuals that accompany Ms Julie Budet wherever she goes should dispel those. Big European electro-pop beats are the universal language.
And so is “free stuff”. Courtesy of Fusion3, I’ve got two copies of the new Yelle single “Je Veux Te Voir” on 12″ vinyl, featuring the original track, two remixes and another album track, to give away. If ye wants, send me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with the English translation of “Je veux te voir” in the subject line and your full mailing address in the body before midnight, May 7. And this contest is open to residents of Canada only, please and thank you.
