At a very young age, Yseult started singing: “It was easier than doing my homework”. Her father listened to African music, French songs and American pop. This young girl listens and reproduces what she hears. She is already very concerned about injustice, believing that women should be treated with the same respect as men. Of course, she cannot be stopped from expressing herself…
Her music is nourished by variety, indie rock, psychedelic, pop and trap. Amazing, refined, efficient. A ‘Y-Trap’ that reflects what she listens to every day, from Lizzo to Feu! Chatterton, from Cardi B to Damso and Tame Impala.
Her 2019 EP Noir, covers love, the past, and independence with a backdrop of addictive beats and a raw stripped-back sound. “Everything in my life is black” she sings in Noir. With Yseult’s follow-up 2020 EP BRUT, she gives French chanson a new dimension by mixing it with temporary melodies and even some English words.
“With critical acclaim and millions of YouTube views, she joins a wave of artists changing the face of pop in France.”The Guardian
“Yseult is fashion’s latest indie darling, the up-and-coming musician that all of the top designers want to dress.”Vogue
