a rip-roaring tessellation of post-punk, new-wave and noisy disco funk; the nyc quartet separate themselves from the pack with their crisp, pop-sensitive hooks and gleeful brazenness.

While magnetic singer and lyricist Sam York and guitarist and principal sonic architect Vince McClelland (who both played together as members of the meteoric yet short-lived NYC post-punk outfit WALL) take an almost anarchic approach to songwriting, Drew Citron, on synth and bass, and drummer/producer Scott Rosenthal (both previously of Brooklyn indie-pop favourites Beverly) bring a more traditional, pop sensibility to the table. These contrasting styles challenge and complement each other, resulting in a sound that is full of spiralling and exhilarating tensions. Fans of madonnatron, x-ray spex & delta 5 should dive into this one!
