L’Amour Bleu (Bloc Party’s Matt Tong + Palms’ Ryan Schaefer) to Release ‘Please’ 2-14-17

Today, L’Amour Bleu announced they will release their debut album Please this Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2017 via Static Recital. Founded by drummer Matt Tong (Bloc Party, Algiers) and guitarist/vocalist Ryan Schaefer (Palms), L’Amour Bleu closed out 2016 with the release of the Little Richard-channeling video for single “New Dominance”.

L’Amour Bleu’s unbridled, avant-garde riff-rock challenges traditional limits of music and performance with a distinctly New York aesthetic. Working between their respective studios in Midtown Manhattan and Sunnyside, Queens, the group’s early tracks acquired markedly esoteric qualities with the addition of art director and exhibitionist performer, Shane Ruth (Baby) and guitarist/bassist E.A. Ireland. The band’s performances eschew conventionalism, involving raucous improvisational collaborations with artists such as Stanley Love, Delia Gonzalez and samurai dancer Takemi Kitamura in spaces ranging from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland to feted Bushwick rave-hole Bossa Nova Civic Club.

Named for the historical text-book of male sensuality from 1978, L’Amour Bleu explores aesthetic realms of emotional voyeurism through the various lenses of masculine desire, rebuilding soft centers with faded color swatches of sadness, rage, frustration and ambivalence with a corrupt, orgiastic pastiche of decadent pop and beyond.
