Robots in Disguise – Postcards From

robots_in_disquise.jpg

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.”
