Robert and David Perlick-Molinari of French Horn Rebellion will be releasing a new EP of material, on December 11th titled Love Is Dangerous, and the EP has the band experimenting with a new sound, which bears some similarities to New Jack Swing but with heavier beats and deeper grooves. And interestingly enough, the band will be collaborating with Fat Tony, the Knocks’ JPatt, and Jody Watley. Yes, Jody Watley y’all. “Love is Dangerous,” is the latest single from the EP and it features JPatt doing vocal duties; the remix by Chrome Canyon brings the song closer to the synth sound of 80s Motown and R&B. In particular, think of The Whispers’ “Rock Steady,” Patrice Rushen’s “Feels So Real” and “Forget Me Nots,” as well as Jody Watley’s “Looking for a New Love.” The remix has the same slick production values.
French Horn Rebellion is touring to support the Love Is Dangerous EP and the Poster Girl EP. You can catch them tomorrow at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, which should be a fun night of shopping, drinking, and live music. And then throughout December, the band is joining of Montreal for an American tour. That tour includes a December 11th stop at Webster Hall. Early in this site’s history I caught them at the Glasslands Gallery, and I can tell you that if you do catch them it’ll be a sweaty, and wildly enthusiastic show.
