When Maudoux left in 2011, he was not replaced, renderring it a 4-member band.

It also found great reception and in 2009 their first digital single as Young Michelin (“Je suis fatigué” / “Les Copains”) earned them the top award at “CQFD: Ceux qu’il faut découvrir” organized by Les Inrockuptibles. They also released a vynil EP in 2010 made up of 4 songs (“Je suis fatigué” / “Elle m’oubliera” / “Obscène” / “Teen Whistle”) on La Bulle Sonore label.
