While many French acts have little effect on the other side of the Pacific, eighties synth-pop duo Niagara had some minor success before calling it a day in 1992. Made up of Muriel Laporte on vocals and Daniel Chenevez on synths and keyboards, Niagara drew many comparisons -- both musically and in membership format -- to the Eurythmics. They came together in 1984 in Rennes, and by 1986 had scored two hit singles (1985's "Tchiki Boum" and 1986's "L'amour Ã la Plage.") and released their first album, 1986's Encore Un Dernier Baiser. 1989 saw them gain a following in Canada, but they weren't to remain in the business for too much longer, they released two more albums, Religion in 1990 and La VÃ©ritÃ© in 1992, and Muriel and Daniel went their separate ways shortly thereafter. In 2002, the legacy that the group had left behind was re-examined with the compilation release, Flammes. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
