Group made to gather all fans of band Yelle. Join us.

Yelle is a French band founded by lead singer and namesake, Yelle (born Julie Budet) and GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier). A third member, Tepr (Tanguy Destable), joined the band before the recording of their debut album.
Budet met and became good friends with producer GrandMarnier in 2000 and in 2005 they began making music together when both wanted to start a French electropop band. The name of the band, Yelle, began as an acronym of the phrase "You Enjoy Life", "YEL", but was later feminised to "Yelle" because a Belgian band was already using the former. Yelle rose to fame on MySpace when they posted a song titled "Short Dick Cuizi", which later became "Je Veux Te Voir", with their account in late 2005. It received a positive response and soon attracted the attention of record label, Source.
Yelle then began working on and recording their debut album, Pop Up in 2006, producer Tepr had been roped into the band after meeting GrandMarnier while working as a journalist.
Yelle's second album, Safari Disco Club, was released on 14 March 2011. The title track was released for free on their website in January 2011.
