Oozing sensuality and provocative energy, Risque emerge from the
erotic underworld with their debut album, Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down
on the revered Some Bizarre label.
Risqu' - French vixen Nathalie and her Welsh husband Huw û
combine their lavish soundscapes with a series of incredible
collaborations from the likes of dance pop diva Billie Ray
Martin and New York City's legendary transsexual sexbomb and
muse of David LaChapelle, Amanda Lepore.
The album's title track, Tie Me Up Tie Me Down showcases
Nathalie's ethereal vocals (in French and English) astride
classic electro rhythms while Push The Button with Billie Ray
Martin is a rock n' synth pop anthem in the making.
I Want Your Number is a futuristic combination of pure
dancefloor energy and the confused mathematics of love: '6%
pneumatic 60% politic 20% chemistry, 90% destiny' coos Nathalie.
'This track wasn't written for Marilyn, it was written for me!ö
says Amanda Lepore, of Marilyn, the track she guests on. An ode
to the celebrity culture of chasing money, youth and æVIP
utopia' with echoes of the Pet Shop Boys, it's a guaranteed hit.
Elsewhere, Risque give their unique take on Talking Heads'
Psychokiller and Velvet Underground's S&M anthem Venus In Furs.
With provocative tracks like Plastic
Lover and Deshabille Toi, rounding up an accomplished debut
album, listening is a seductive and sensual experience.
