Rising out of Helsinki’s local electro-pop-punk scene in 2007, sisters Emma and Mia Kemppainen’s musical vehicle LCMDF (Le Corps Mince de Francoise) was quickly picked up by bloggers and music fans across the globe. Their incredibly vibrant, leftfield pop gained them countless fans, earning them the top spot on the Hype Machine, out-ranking even Kanye West.

Since seeing the band’s first ever UK show, Heavenly have wanted to work with the band. Following them from their early shows the label travelled to gigs in Oslo and Trondheim, Norway and their hometown of Helsinki where they played a sold out night to 600 fans jumping off the walls. They left the show determined to sign them. A year later with their debut album recorded the band is set to release their debut single ‘Gandhi’ as a free download on November 29th.

Gandhi’ re-imagines Sean Ryder’s skewed pop vision, but sung by Nordic sirens who cut their teeth listening to everyone from the Beastie Boys to Gaga whilst getting lost in Ghost World. It’s as immediate and accessible as it is dazzlingly unique.

In keeping with their Dance music and Pop heritage, Heavenly say of their newest signing “the band hold true the qualities of the bands we love: conviction, tunes & a love of POP

Currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album LOVE & NATURE, produced by Kaiku Studios in Berlin, the band are soon set to unleash their songs and ebullient live performances on Europe this winter. One thing is for certain: LCMDF won’t remain a best-kept-secret for much longer.
