Dee Plume and Sue Denim met each other at the University of Liverpool and formed the electro-pop band, Robots in Disguise. This track in particular has a subtle synth pad sound for a bass line which is colored with an acoustic guitar and a very acoustic snare drum and rim shot that punches through the mix. The vocals are very art school.
They describe their sound as, “… Indie, punk, funk, rock. That sounds a bit pretentious doesn’t it? It’s a bit of everything with an electro backing and two vocals harmonizing.”
Freezepop – Harebrained Scheme
7 Day Weekend – Party Monster
Gang of Four-ish bass line, vocoded vocals, disco-esque backbeat, with Rock feeling throughout is the decor for Shout Out Out Out Out’s, “Dude You Feel Electrical”. Kinda of hover in the space between Interpol and Daft Punk.
A couple members (Gravy and Lyle) of Shout Out Out Out Out also play in a banded called Whitey Houston.
