Desire is a Canadian electronic music band from Montreal,[4][5] formed in 2009. The band consists of vocalist Megan Louise, producer Johnny Jewel (also a member of Chromatics and Glass Candy), and Nat Walker (also a member of Chromatics) on synthesizer and drums.[4][6] Their debut studio album, II, was released on June 30, 2009 on the Italians Do It Better label.[6][7] Their lyrics are in French and English.[5]

Fact magazine listed II as the 14th best album of 2009.[8] In 2009, the band's song "Under Your Spell" was featured in the 2010 S/S Max Mara fashion show, as well as in the Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012. The track also appeared in the soundtrack to the 2011 films Drive and Oslo, August 31st.[1][9] Kid Cudi sampled "Under Your Spell" for the 2012 song "Teleport 2 Me, Jamie", released as the first single from the self-titled debut album of his WZRD rock project.[10] Desire recorded the song "Behind the Mask" for the soundtrack to the 2015 film Lost River.[11]
