CRITIC REVIEWS

Gigwise

So bold, so adventurous and so expertly crafted, Paradigmes is a daring feat that feels like the culmination of all their prior releases.

musicOMH

Paradigmes is an album that, whilst recalling a concession of progenitors, has no modern-day comparison.

The Line of Best Fit

With the age of the inward looking lockdown album now upon us, Paradigmes comes at a perfect time, it’s equal parts silly, serious, camp, and on occasion mildly ridiculous, but remains wildly inventive throughout, it’s one hell of a party.

Dork

A completely entrancing exercise in how to craft the most hypnotic electro-pop possible.

AllMusic

La Femme's passion for seeking out new (or vintage) sounds to add to their omnivorous pop is contagious, and never more so than on Paradigmes.

80
Record Collector

An album of expertly-curated electropop where Old Europe and the New World collide ... Paradigmes is an exemplar of 21st century French pop.

70
Spectrum Culture
With more elements at their disposal than ever, La Femme embrace camp and a shimmering sound to express themselves. Decadence and ridiculousness run rampant here.
69
Pitchfork

The French psych rockers’ send-up of mythic American road trip fantasies is undeniably fun, even if the humor and hooks don’t approach anything like real insight.

60
DIY

La Femme toss so many weird and interesting ideas against the wall, that for every gorgeous moment that sticks, there’s an awkward miss.

Much better than "Mystère"

FIRST LISTEN: Although some songs might sound like an 80s advert in places, Paradigmes is an incredibly fun and refreshing take on the Western pop genre which other nations could learn a lesson or two from. Proper tunes to dance to.

I'm a sucker for French Synthpop so this automatically makes my ears cum without it being so adventurous!
