riffs and pounding drums with a highly-exceptional voice to produce futuristic sounding,
awe-inspiring pop. In the course of a minute, you may hear Soft Cell, New Order,
Kraftwerk, Associates, Cabaret Voltaire and Freur. The band has toured extensively across
China, the Netherlands, Canada and the USA and worked with producer Tony Visconti

(David Bowie) and Kristeen Young. Their brand new album ‘Fake Virtue’ has been
critically acclaimed in multiple countries and is produced by Jacco Gardner. Music video
‘New Kid’ has been unanimously praised for its quality and originality, and considered
