Ex-London, now Berlin based duo Noblesse Oblige was formed in early 2004 by Franco / German pair Sebastian and Valerie.

Their debut album Privilege Entails Responsibility, released to much critical acclaim in 2006 on Horseglue Records, comprises an eclectic mix of disco punk, sixties French chanson, military beats, transgressive folklore and raw acoustic ballads with lyrical wit, controversial lyrics, humour and bad taste.

Having toured and performed with artists including Dresden Dolls, Kaito, and Motormark among others, NOBLESSE OBLIGE have gained a notorious reputation for their wild and spectacular shows. Taking turns in playing bass, acoustic guitar, samplers, keyboard and drums, Sebastian and Valerie blend edgy electronics with a raw live sound that captures the sleazy tension within the duos crass yet sensual performance. From uber-hip nightclubs in Paris to S&M dungeons in Rome, over sold-out support slots for Vive La Fete in Belgium back to the warehouse raves and art galleries of London Town, Noblesse Oblige have toured most of Europe back and forth over the past 2 years.

The band’s own club night Caligula, soon to be re-launched in Berlin, has regularly been voted Critic’s choice in London Time Out, following a range of extremely debauched events, introducing an impressive range of Live acts including MOTOR (novamute), Pam Hogg, Cursor Miner and Comanechi to name a few. Having gained the respect of a many fellow artist N.O. have remixed tracks for Mark Moore (S-Express), Xlover (International Gigolo Records), Musiccargo (Amontillado Rec.), Motormark (Digital Hardcore Records), Hiem (Crosstown Rebels) and Temposhark (Paper & Glue) among many others.

Most recently, the band have re-settled to Berlin. Having set up their own commercial recording studio in the heart of Berlin´s Neukölln district, the follow up to Privilege Entails Responsibility is promising to be the next highlight in N.O.´s young musical career that has already divided critics and audiences alike.
