Finally! Najoua Belyzel has returned with a brand new single entitled “Viens, Viens.” If you’re unfamiliar with the name Belyzel, check out my earlier post about her back in the day. She used to be in a pop group, but we like to forget small details like that around here.
The song is a cover of a cover, actually. Originally written in Germany, the title was done over by Marie LaforÃªt in 1973. And now, given a sleek electro under-pulse and a generous dose of Belyzel’s characteristic yelps, the repackaged song oozes with fragile conviction. I’ve tried to dig through the translated lyrics. From what I gather, it’s searching and poetic. Listen on!
And while you’re at it, check out the song in it’s original form. Well, original covered form.
