Electronic band DESIRE performs at Roxy Cinema and screens exclusive music videos at this unprecedented event!
Desire formed in Montreal & currently based in Palm Springs. They make synth pop where film, fashion, & fantasy collide on the dancefloor. On stage, vocalist Megan Louise theatrically pivots between French & English while draped in latex from head to toe. From vixen to villain, she turns to predator with blood pumping thrill. Carrying the campy torch of Vaudeville into this century she is joined by composer Johnny Jewel (Chromatics, Glass Candy, Twin Peaks) on piano & drum machine.
As the flagship artist of the influential record label Italians Do It Better, they have scored runways for Dior, Chanel, Fendi, & Bottega Venetta as well as writing music for films by Nicolas Refn, David Lynch, & Ryan Gosling. Earlier this year, Desire took their moody bounce to the global dancefloor. Collaborating on tracks with Omar S, Diplo, Guy Gerber, Maceo Plex, & Seth Troxler.
Desire gained worldwide exposure with their hit song “Under Your Spell” which was featured prominently in 2011’s neon-noir film, Drive. In 2019, Desire co-headlined the Double Exposure world tour with label mates Chromatics. The performances are complete sonic & visual emersion for the audience. Their brand of 1980’s infused synthwave is accompanied by ultra-vivid surrealist films projected throughout their set.
