LCMDF, formerly known as Le Corps Mince de Françoise, are just the kind of band that suits a Memorial Day playlist. With that weekend now upon us, there’s no time better than now for the duo to drop their latest remix, “Fooled”, remixed by fellow Finns 5/5.

Emma Kemppainen and Mia Kemppaine are the two sisters behind the LCMDF name, and already they’ve started garnering attention, with The Guardian putting them on a recent “Pop Playlist”. When you watch the lyric video for 5/5’s remix of “Fooled”, you’ll see why they’re nabbing the attention that they are now, as well as why they’re ideal aural accompaniment for any upcoming summer holiday festivities.
The duo tells PopMatters, “This summer we wanted to make the girls dance, so while fooling around in the studio with this Taylor Swift-like pop a cappella, we added some finger snaps to it, then a PC music-like EDM buildup that breaks down to a juiced up summer hook. That’s what 5/5 is all about.”
