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 à 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 Vérité 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 True
