Already a hit song for both The Doors and Iggy Pop, rest assured this is no euro trash parody from We Are Enfant Terrible. ‘Wild Child’ is like the scuzzy electro soundtrack to the latest Skins episode or a drrrtier Le Tigre playing out a track from their This Island remixes. It’s hardly surprising then, with such a sound, the band’s first gig was opening for Peaches.
Rather fittingly, the video for ‘Wild Child’ does feature infants in a hazy, vintage home movie style as well as interspersed band shots filmed under some kind of home-made fort (as one only does during their childhood). A far cry from what their name might suggest, We Are Enfant Terrible are a heady mixture of stabbing synths, distorted drum samples and purring Parisian vocals from Miss Clo Floret. At last a French act worth celebrating, tchin-tchin!
