Bio

Rouge Foncé (pronounced roozh fon-SAY) are a dark cabaret rock band from Melbourne, Australia. They are a five-piece band comprising of: Lola Jane (vocals), Michelle (bass, vocals), Weezel (keyboards), Sarah (drums) and David (lead guitar). Since their first gig in 2009, they have exploded onto the live scene, playing at venues such as The Corner Hotel, Ruby’s Lounge, the Esplanade, the Arthouse, DV8, The Barwon Club (Geelong), Tony Starr’s Kitten Club, and more. They have supported many Australian artists including Yohosie, Dave Graney, The Woohoo Revue, and The Vultures of Venus and international artists Voltaire and Christian Death. They have received airplay and been interviewed on a number of radio stations including 3WBC 94.1 FM (Box Hill), The Pulse 94.7 FM (Geelong), 3CR 855AM (Fitzroy), and SYN FM 90.7 (Melbourne). Rouge Foncé bring provocative vocals, haunting melodies, and macabre storytelling rock to the burlesque revival scene. In the spirit of bringing together the worlds of rock and burlesque, they often have burlesque noir dancer Kerryx perform during their set. Once described as “The Dresden Dolls meets Hole”, and with many comparisons to Concrete Blonde, their live show is not one to be missed.

this is one of those songs that makes you feel cool just listening to it. dark and driving, it creates moving images that swirl like smoke long after the song finishes. i could listen to it over and over..
