    Laetitia Sheriff – Baby man

    By Vincent Hanon 18 February 2016

    Hypnotising France

    INITIALLY inspired by the works of Irish poet William Butler Yeats, French rock artist Laetitia Sheriff started singing in 2004. Slowly but surely, she polished her own songwriting skills (in English) and played in the accordion and jazz cafes around Lille, in Northern France.
    Now based in Rennes, Brittany, Laetitia has released three albums and a few EPs, all full of mysterious songs which occasionally evoke the universe of David Lynch or Cat Power. Layered with stunning vocals and noise-rock guitars, à la Sonic Youth.
    ‘Baby Man’, the hypnotic and tender song on the ‘So Frenchy So Chic – Best of’ compilation, is taken from her first record ‘Codification’. If someone in France had to define the sound of the current state of emergency, then the seductive Laetitia Sheriff owns it more than anyone else.
