Shortly after their new single, “Safari Disco Club,” has sparked excitement across the international blogosphere, French trio Yelle have announced a North American tour.  The dance-pop group’s upcoming dates kick off with a performance at Coachella, where their arsenal of infectious new anthems will be on full display.  Click HERE for pre-sale tickets for the tour, and the general on-sale begins this Friday, Feb 4th.  Yelle will also be making an appearance in New York during the upcoming fashion week.  They’ll be doing a DJ set for The W Hotel’s “Global Glam” at the Box on February 10th.

Yelle is fronted and named by Yelle, nee Julie Budet, a sparky gamine with a deceptively demure schoolgirl voice. Joined by producers GrandMarnier (Jean-Francois Perrier) and Tepr(Tanguy Destable), Yelle first arrived amid a flurry of 80’s inspired pop, with the likes of CSS and New Young Pony Club all revered for their take on brightly colored electro. Pop-Up stood out from the crowd with its wry, frothy and unashamedly fun outlook. This infectious appeal not only led to work with Robyn and Katy Perry, but gained them fans in fellow musicians such as M.I.A. and Mika, as well as mainstream personalities like Perez Hilton and Jessica Alba.

Since the release of their acclaimed debut album, Pop-Up, the band have been keeping busy.  They covered Robyn‘s “Who’s That Girl” as part of the iTunes international exchange, and she covered their track “A Cause Des Garçons” in return. They were also were asked by Katy Perry to remix her hit single “Hot n Cold” which has led to them supporting her UK tour in April.
