FEMME - Light Me Up

After spending the past two years delivering self-written, self-produced knockout pop gems to an ever-growing army of bullet girls and fever boys, British alt-pop darling Laura Bettinson, aka FEMME has today announced the release of her long-awaited debut album, Debutante.

Led by glistening new single "‘Light Me Up’", this kaleidoscopic collection takes a journey through high pedigree, female-powered pop referencing sixties girl groups, seventies disco divas, nineties chart icons and modern day bass-fiends. All channelled through FEMME's singular, modish filter. With the Hype Machine topping, incendiary singles "Fever Boy", "S.O.S.", "High" and "Gold" also in tow, Debutante is a reminder that whether raunchy, heart-breaking, energizing or empowering, pop music should always be one thing: fun.

Described as a “one-woman powerhouse'” by Radio 1's Annie Mac, FEMME is the real deal when it comes to unadulterated artistry. As composer, producer, director and choreographer, FEMME has eschewed major label interest in order to maintain her musical vision without interference. This uncompromising approach hasn't stopped her mixing with the great and the good: FEMME has toured the USA with Charli XCX, featured on tracks by Huxley and Moonboy Inc., among others, been remixed by NZCA Lines and partnered with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich for their critically acclaimed Ultraísta collaboration and album.

FEMME's pink-haired, gold-drenched style has seen her hailed by giants of couture too. Vogue declared her “Fashion's Favourite New Pop Star”, she's soundtracked catwalk shows by Stella McCartney and been invited to promote new ranges by Uniqlo, BooHoo and adidas NEO. Her irrepressible personality has brought a fierce spark to every campaign, an uncompromising energy which shines through every track on Debutante.

Listen to "Light Me Up" below.

Debutante will be released on April 15th.
