La Féline is a French band led by singer and guitarist Agnès Gayraud. Agnès plays solo or with her full rock band, sensitive or powerful moods, or mixing both in a sensual alchemy she seems to have the secret of.
Named after Jacques Tourneur’s movie, there is something cinematic about her music : she sings in French — byzantine lyrics that ring in your head long after hearing them —, brings together her keen pop songwriting and Baudelaire, church singing and jazz freakout, pop and deep thoughts. After a first rather intimate album, Adieu l’enfance, released in 2014, she’s gone wilder and groovier, making her music even more magnetic and ambitious. Her new LP, Triomphe, was just released in the UK (01/19/2018), and « Triomphe is an apt title, says the DiS’s review, as everything about this album works, from the luscious opening to the elegant outro, and demands to be played again and again. »
