Lovers of synth-pop and Romo may like this pair. Their wry, observational lyrics and way with hooks place them a cut above a lot of new electro-pop acts. Their look isn't as in-your-face flamboyant as a lot of electro bands, but a look at videos of their live shows reveal an engagingly arch performance style that reminds me a lot of bands like Plastic Fantastic.

Although they show 80's and 90's influences, they don't come across as "tribute" or "retro-pop", perhaps because the topics of their songs are quite up-to-date. Their most popular song seems to be Disco Fever, which is my favourite too as it's the most dynamic and has some lovely warm synth sounds.
