Listen to L’Impératrice’s ‘Paris’ from Emily in Paris, Season 3, Ep. 4 – a cool indie pop track

L’Impératrice’s ‘Paris‘ one of the few cool songs from a mediocre Emily in Paris Season 3 soundtrack

As Season 3 of Emily in Paris was released on Netflix yesterday, just a quick watch of one of the episodes will show you the show’s music supervisor has gone increasingly deep indie. To a point that, even myself a music journalist hadn’t heard of most of the artists.

Then again, I guess using largely unknown European artists releasing mediocre music makes adding music to the show’s soundtrack a lot cheaper, eh?



One of the songs that did stand out on the Emily in Paris Season 3 soundtrack though, and from an artist I have actually heard of, was a track from L’Impératrice — a French indie pop band whose song ‘Paris‘ was played on Emily in Paris, Season 3, Episode 4, “Live from Paris, It’s Emily Cooper“.

That track was released in 2018 on the band’s debut studio album Matahari, which came out via the French indie label Microqlima.

L’Impératrice, whic was founded in 2012, comprises six musicians — keyboardists Charles de Boisseguin and Hagni Gwon, bass guitarist David Gaugué, electrict guitarist Achille Trocellier, drummer Tom Daveau, and singer Flore Benguigui.

They produce cool indie pop music that tends to stick in your heart long after it ends.

Listen to L’Impératrice’s ‘Paris’ as heard on the latest season of Emily in Paris in the video, and on the band’s Matahari album, and you’ll understand what I mean a few hours later.

All three seasons of Emily in Paris are now streaming on Netflix.
