No matter how much I want to deny the French girl aesthetic, there will definitely always be a part of me that feels disgustingly cute in red lipstick, a slightly oversized silk blouse, and a hairstyle that’s just perfectly disheveled––i.e. basically every French girl. But American-French envy doesn’t end with fashion, it only begins there. French electronic duo YELLE dropped their new single, “Romeo,” last month, proving that everything sounds better in French, including synth-pop. If you couldn’t tell from the title, the track tells a dreamy love story full of confusion and infatuation––just our style. And today, exclusively through BULLETT, the band is releasing the Lewis OfMan remix, which might even be better than the original. Complementing YELLE’s signature ‘80s sound with hypnotic piano harmonies, OfMan gives the unapologetic pop ballad a Clubland twist that doesn’t deviate too far from the initial idea––it just adds to it. And though we may never actually be French, at least we have “Romeo.”
