french (n): the beast, wild animal
"Don't tell me to smile or I'll knock out your teeth. Excuse me, do I know you? Cuz you don't know me."
At first glance Le Fauve may look sweet, but her lyrics bely a much more fiery "don't fuck with me" inner attitude that she pulls from on her latest releases.
Le Fauve is Jaime Brackeen, a singer and songwriter based in Los Angeles. Her music is an amalgamation of riot grrrl punk, ‘60s French surf rock, and a dash of pop. She just released her third single, "Leave Me Alone," on June 7th with a companion music video and digital zine.
Brackeen moved to L.A. in 2015 to pursue a career as a writer and standup comic, but after a few years of doing the comedy hustle she took some time off to deal with burnout and emerged back on the entertainment scene with a small catalog of original songs. She has been diligently pivoting her focus to music since.
