About Yseult

At a very young age, Yseult started singing: "It was easier than doing my homework". Her father listened to African music, French songs and American pop. This young girl listens and reproduces what she hears. She is already very concerned about injustice, believing that women should be treated with the same respect as men. Of course, she cannot be stopped from expressing herself…

Her music is nourished by variety, indie rock, psychedelic, pop and trap. Amazing, refined, efficient. A ‘Y-Trap’ that reflects what she listens to every day, from Lizzo to Feu! Chatterton, from Cardi B to Damso and Tame Impala.

In 2019 comes the EP Noir, whose addictive beats serve as texts that are always raw and stripped of their formwork. Love, the past, independence: that's what Yseult wants to sing, and that's what we'll hear on her upcoming debut album. "Everything in my life is black" she sings in Noir. However, Yseult has a bright future ahead of her, with a contagious smile and an afro haircut that is as free as air. Whoever loves her, follows her.
