Band Info


Best known as the lead vocalist for Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier was born in France and was working as a nanny in the late '80s when she met McCarthy member Tim Gane at one of the band's gigs in Paris. She followed Gane to London and the duo formed Stereolab soon after McCarthy disbanded in 1990. The pair was inspired by lounge-pop, bossa nova, film music, and Krautrock, but Sadier's hypnotic vocals and leftist lyrics made the band's sound even more distinctive. Stereolab earned critical acclaim for albums such as 1993's 'Transient Random Noise Bursts with Announcements', 1995's 'Mars Audiac Quintet' and 2001's 'Sound-Dust' Sadier's immediately recognizable voice also appeared on many other collaborations over the years, including songs with Blur, Luna, The High Llamas, and Mouse on Mars. Stereolab went on hiatus in 2009 and Sadier began work on her first solo album, working with the Spinanes' Rebecca Gates, April March, Richard Swift, and former Monade players Julien Gasc and Emmanuel Mario. 'The Trip' was released in 2010, the same year that another Stereolab collection, 'Not Music', arrived. Two years later, the more introspective, political 'Silencio' appeared.
