L’Impératrice first came to life after Charles de Boissegain had a dream-filled night back in 2012. Three years later, and the band has found its final form with the arrival of Flore Benguigui behind the microphone. To her sugary vocals add five musicians with huge aspirations to the mix, and you’ve got a sextet whose glorious 2018 album, Matahari, saw a collaboration with the wonderful Eumir Deodato on a track of the same name. The record brings together all their passions, from disco-lead film soundtracks from the 60s and 70s, to Californian pop and La French Touch. Just imagine if Daft Punk covered François de Roubaix….! L’Imperatrice create chic synths-y songs that are euphoric, sensual and simply joyous, making for the ideal soundtrack for anyone dreaming of dancing beneath the stars.
