about

Madame So London, UK

Madame So is a Paris-born /London-based singer-songwriter.
She makes edgy pop that has been likened to Hole, Blondie, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey.
You’ll either love the catchy immediacy of her melodies or dismiss it as being too “lo-fi”… Either way, in her own words: “If I pushed your buttons, I’ve accomplished my mission.”

'The Sell-by Date EP' is out now.

Track Name: Black is Beautiful
She sits there in her room
Listening to The Cure
She’s there on her own
With her headphones on
Her little sis storms in: she wants to know more
She streams, she screens: she wants to know more

She says ‘Black is beautiful’
She says it’s not even a colour
She says ‘Black is beautiful’
She says it’s not even a colour

She heads straight from school
To embrace subculture
With Doc Martens boots and a Niggy Tardust tee-shirt on
She gets dirty looks from all the other girls
Who do wonder what is wrong with her

She says ‘Black is beautiful’
They say it’s not even a colour
She says ‘Black is beautiful’
They say it’s not even a colour

Her folks think she is demented
Her folks think she’s been abducted
By the white white white white white white noise
By the white white white white white white noise

They say ‘Black is beautiful’
She says it’s not even a colour
They say ‘Black is beautiful’
She says it’s not even a colour

It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour

She digs the vibe of Wesley Willis
She feels his stress on neurosis
Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates
Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates

They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour
They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour

It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour

Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum
Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum
Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum

To say, to say…

‘I know, I know, I know, I know’
‘I know, I know, I know, I know’ ...

‘BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL'
Track Name: Deed is Done
I knew you were too good to be true
“I love you” came into play way too soon
And I knew that it would hurt eventually
I didn’t care, I was too busy being happy

It’s all gone: the deed is done
It’s all gone: the deed is done

I had to let go of you
That was all but easy
You had become my favourite enemy
I had to go cold turkey

It’s all gone: the deed is done
It’s all gone: the deed is done

I wish I could have seen the light
And not have given you any of my day
But love is blind, they say

So I suffer quietly
Day in day out,
Longer by the memory
Of how it feels to be happy

It’s all gone: the deed is done
It’s all gone: the deed is done
It’s all gone: the deed is done
It’s all gone: the deed is done
Track Name: A Tout Jamais
Si tu voulais de mon amour
Il t’appartiendrait pour toujours
Je te donne le compte a rebours
Pour que tu me fasses la cour
Tu me dragues, je te vannes
On est tous les deux
Tu me nargues, je m’attache
On tombe amourux

Et quand bien meme
Les choses se gâteraient
Saches que je t’aime
Et cela a tout jamais

C’est une belle histoire d’amour
Comme on en entend pas tous les jours
Pourvu qu’elle dure pour toujours
Et nous inspire quelques calembours
Tu m’enlasses, je t’embrasse
On se tient la mien
Tu m’agaces, je m’agite
Mais ca ne fait rien

Car quand bien même
Les choses se gâteraient
Saches que je t’aime
Et cela a tout jamais

‘Cause every I want, you’ve got it
Everything I need, you’ve got it
Anything at all, you’ve it

Da, Da, Da,Da, Da, Da, Da Da, Da, Da, Da, Da
Track Name: I'll Stick Around
Let’s sum up what’s going’ on:
You and I loving each other
‘Got to keep that secret
‘Cause it’s not of common use

We don’t match each other, they say
And this you believe, and this you listen
From now on, I’m like Mardou
Losing her Jack away

Wanna fit into the system
And for that purpose you’d break off
The building of our love
To join the herd …

In Olympia they looked the same, and talked the same and fucked the same
But everywhere around is the same …

Listen to the breeders, instead of your heart
Their money and cocaine can win it
I understand and I forgive

I’ll stick around
I’ll stick around
I’ll stick around
