Stream Brand-New Dangerous Muse Tracks

Dangerous_muse_give_me_danger

Listening to Dangerous Muse is like looking at a Mondrian painting. The quality of the group's music is not in its multi-layered depth or frivolous bells & whistles. Instead Mike Furey and Tom Napack like to keep their sound to the point, delivering straight-up, minimalist synth tunes that mostly emphasize Furey's breathy vocals.

Arjanwrites.com can exclusively post two brand-new tracks by the New York duo. "Break Up" is a subdued slice of disco pop with a hooky synth riff that briefly introduces Furey's falsetto. The nocturnal "In This Town" is a bouncy electro tune that supposedly refers to the conceited fashionistas in New York City. "Watch what you wear in this town, they always see you. On judgment day the material girls play god," sings Furey. "Swipe your card to save your life. In this town it is only about what you wear." I'm curious what inspired them to write a song about this subject. In my humble opinion these honeys look good no matter what they wear.

Both "Break Up" and "In This Town" will appear together with the new single "Give Me Danger" on the group's new digital EP.

I'm loving all the tracks on the EP. Anyone else hear a bit of Depeche Mode's "Lie To Me" on "In This Town"s bass?

I love these two tracks. Can't wait for these two boys to come over and take England by storm :)

"In This Town" is a total ripoff of Depeche Mode's "Lie To Me". The bass line is almost identical.

Any clues as to an actual CD single release? LOVE THE FONT! Tell them for me!

I really like these 2 tracks, especially The Breakup. They are both very reminescent of some 1983/84 Depeche Mode (The obscure DM B Side "Fools" and of course album track "Lie To Me").

I haven't liked anything by them until these 2. Nice surprise.
