“Take a Cue From French Horn Rebellion and Embrace Your Inner Band Geek” – Mashable
Today, French Horn Rebellion released The Fire EP, featuring alternate versions of the title track “The Fire”, which is a collaboration with Savoir Adore. The two bands, related by marriage for the last few years, have finally collaborated to keep you warm all season long. Make like David of FHR and Deidre of Savoir Adore and cuddle up under the disco ball, dancing the night away. Winter is here. As the snow falls and icicles form we need to keep a fire in our hearts. We pack into cozy bars to get warm and dance by the firelight to remember we’re alive. In “The Fire”, Savoir Adore‘s forest fantasy pop blends with French Horn Rebellion’s hot dancefloor beats.
Dancing Astronaut premiered the Rubber Ross Remix of the track, as well as a brand new video from their earlier hit “Beaches & Friends” with Brazil’s Database. You can view it here.
Robert from FHR said the following about the “Beaches & Friends” video “As we were watching HBO’s Girls on our couches, hearing our song Beaches and Friends from 2009, we suddenly came to think about that long lost music video we did…. And so we went searching for it. This never came out because we made a decision to release a video for ‘The Twelves Remix’ of the song instead, so this one was put on the shelf. We hope you enjoy watching our younger 2009 versions, as much as we are (and laughing a lot at David’s conquistador ‘stache) !”
French Horn Rebellion are Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. In 2007, younger brother Robert was playing French horn in the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and decided to make hot beats instead. After telling the conductor that Mahler isn’t fun anymore he asked his bassoon-toting brother, David to join with him. And so it was, a French Horn Rebellion began.
Since then, the boys have travelled 5 continents with French horn slung over their back, doing shows with MGMT, Yelle, Cut Copy, and others along the way. Also, they’ve pioneered a new genre called ‘Next Jack Swing,’ like New Jack, but with heavy beats and funkier bass lines. Their latest EPs, Poster Girl (with Database), Girls (ft JD Samson and Fat Tony) and Love is Dangerous (ft J Pat from The Knocks), Dancing Out (ft Jody Watley), Friday Nights (with Viceroy) and Caaalifornia (ft Bebe Panthere and Ghost Beach) are out now.
