The Electro-Clash scene in New York City was undoubtedly one of the most creatively glamorous, deliciously lascivious and culturally influential pop music movements in recent years, but like most dance music, while ground breaking in its production, it may have lacked a certain emphasis on the art of songwriting- Mike Furey and Tom Napack decided to do things differently...
Vocalist Mike Furey, a regular at all of the hottest downtown dance parties, wanted to use that dark, lusty, trashy dance sound he'd absorbed there to write the more personal songs that were gestating in his sub-conscious. Programmer/keyboardist Tom Napack, new to the scene, was looking for a vocalist and songwriting partner. They got together and immediately knew they had something. Combining the gloomy sexiness of the scene with a keen sense of song craft and pop drama, Dangerous Muse's sound is as comfortable on the dance floor as it is the morning after.
New York performances at MisShapes, Scenic, Happy Valley and Crash Mansion began to spread the success of their first single "The Rejection" and Dangerous Muse was off and running. Soon they had Mr. Stein's attention and found themselves working on their first commercial release with Ted Ottaviano (Book of Love).
In November 2005, Dangerous Muse released their first EP with Cordless Recordings, the newest addition to the Warner Music Group of labels. The day the EP was available, "The Rejection" soared to number 2 on iTunes' top-selling dance charts and stayed at the top of the charts for weeks.
Dangerous Muse are currently working on writing and producing their next EP, to be available this Spring. They also intend to release a limited-edition picture-disc 10", featuring an Eric Kupper remix of "The Rejection" and some other as-yet-to-be-announced mixes.
