Christine And The Queens

There is, right at this very moment, a new Christine And The Queens single out there for you to listen to. So that’s exciting, isn’t it? It’s called ‘Girlfriend’. The single, I mean. Obviously.

“I initially set out to smash against macho culture and macho men”, says Héloïse Letissier, aka Christine And The Queens. “I became obsessed with this idea of the macho man, and still being a woman. What does it mean if I’m this figure, and I’m a woman? Does it make me an aberration? Is it joyful? I felt I had to address female desire and it’s diversity. How sometimes it’s blacked out or ignored. It’s still something quite suspicious or slightly dirty. I felt like it was important to be more unapologetic about that”.

“There are hints of nights spent having sex and coming back covered in sweat”, she goes on. “Like a male figure, the young hero who has love stories, and comes back in the morning and his friends are like: ‘What happened to you?’ I want to be that”.

As I say, there’s a new Christine And The Queens single. It features Dâm-Funk, and to be honest I’m surprised you’re not listening to it already.
