Ex-London, now Berlin based duo Noblesse Oblige was formed in early 2004 by German songwriter/producer Sebastian Lee Philipp and French actress-cum- chanteuse/songwriter Valerie Renay. Their debut album Privilege Entails Responsibility (the English translation of the bandname) was released in the U.K. in 2006. Its mix of disco punk, sixties French chanson and acoustic folk combined with lyrical wit and dark humour proved an appealing combination among the London hipster crowds. Its first single releases Bitch and Daddy (Don’t touch me there) quickly became indie club regulars throughout Europe.
Having re-located to Berlin in 2007, Noblesse Oblige started working on the follow-up album In Exile, due to be released in September 2008.
