Named for the historical textbook of male sensuality, L’Amour Bleu’s live performances often involve 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, channeling performance art elements to explore themes of decadence, voyeurism and masculine desire
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. L’Amour Bleu’s lineup is completed by art director and exhibitionist performer Shane Ruth (Baby) and guitarist/bassist E.A. Ireland.
