French Rock ‘n’ Roll band Les Lullies have just released their new LP Mauvaise Foi on Slovenly Recordings International. Fans will also notice that the band now sings primarily in French. Mauvaise Foi (a resolutely French title for the 2nd Lullies LP, meaning “bad faith” in English), reflects the band’s decision to sing in their native language.

Dabbling in influences from Normandy (Fixed Up, Dogs, Sub Kids and all), and referencing influences like The Records, The Real Kids and Phil Spector, the band moves from Glam-Rock anthems to Power-Pop, Classic Garage, and Punk.

The band describes the new album as:

No-frills and fast-paced punk rock with a few power-pop jabs every here and there. The title speaks for itself: if we’re wrong, we’ll keep being wrong and drive ourselves crazy.

The recording of the new album Mauvaise Foi started in November 2021 at Château Vergogne, with Maxime Smadja (Rixe, BOSS, Condor, Digital Octopus) who brought all his savoir-faire to the band’s sound. Les Lullies didn’t want to repeat the same record as before and they took time to write, record and produce, due to the pandemic while being stuck at home without touring.

Mauvaise Foi touches on a myriad of themes ranging from serious to lighthearted.

The band explains:

We are all music nerds and record collectors who love to dig and are curious about new things.

The band has toured Europe, the UK, the US and Canada as well as performing at numerous festivals such as We’re Loud, Funtastic Dracula Carnival, Bule Bule Toga Fest, Cosmic Trip, Fuzzville, and the Binic Folk Blues Festival.
