|Jump for joy, Yelle is returning to Miami in December.|
Does Yelle have a little crush on the Magic City? Perhaps. After all, the trio is now returning to South Florida on December 2 for a date at the Fillmore Miami Beach, which, oddly enough, happens to fall during the week (December 1 through 4) of Art Basel Miami Beach 2011.
Anyway, the band's American success is a total oddity. Most record execs will tell you American audiences won't stand for foreign-language tunes. But Yelle has somehow enjoyed moderate success in the States with songs sung entirely in French.
The band released its sophomore effort, Safari Disco Club, this year, which includes choice cuts like the title track and "Que veux-tu." The album doesn't veer too far from the successful formula found on debut record Pop Up -- meaning great beats, a touch of electro, and seemingly happy lyrics, even if you aren't entirely sure what is being said.
Here is the full list Yelle's upcoming fall tour dates, which include two other Florida dates:
11/10: Los Angeles, CA @ Wiltern
11/12: San Francisco, CA @ Mezzanine
12/02: Miami, FL @ Fillmore
