Founded by drummer Matt Tong (Bloc Party, Algiers) and guitarist/vocalist Ryan Schaefer (Palms), L’Amour Bleu‘s unbridled, avant-garde riff-rock challenges traditional limits of music and performance with a distinctly New York aesthetic. Named for the historical textbook of male sensuality, L’Amour Bleu’s lineup is completed by art director and exhibitionist performer Shane Ruth (Baby) and guitarist/bassist E.A. Ireland.
L’Amour Bleu‘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. Working between studios in Midtown Manhattan and Sunnyside, Queens, the group channels elements of performance art and garage rock to explore the frustration and decadence of emotional voyeurism through the aesthetics of masculine desire.
