Biography

Formed in 2004 Boston’s Protokoll combine luxurious synth-pop melodies with shoegaze inspired guitar swells, backed with a juggernaut rhythm section. While there’s no mistaking that this is pop music, these are not pop musicians

Their influences draw as much from British Guitar Pop bands of the 80’s as they do from the New York Post-Punk and No Wave scene of the same decade. They exhibit a raw, urgent sound reminiscent of Chameleons UK and the Sound, but with a heaviness that can only be modern. They have played extensively throughout the US and UK with artists such as: Gary Numan, She Wants Revenge, The Rakes, Annie, Peaches, and Wolfmother.

Their self titled EP was recorded at Q Division studios in Somerville, MA, and engineered by Rafi Sofer, who was the assistant engineer on Mission of Burma’s OnoffOn.


“Terrific new band from the States. Very fine EP. They nod to everything from Bauhaus to The Chameleons UK. My tip for 2006.”- Steve Lamacq- BBC Radio 1


“Future stars. Steve Lamacq already loves them… and you will too!”- NME


“This band is GREAT!”- Zane Lowe BBC1

    Dudes, the show at Terrace tonight was fucking awesome, and listening to the ep right now convinces me that the purchase was more than worth it. Kickass band!

    Who wants to send me any of the remixes that I see on that list there? Most especially the Fury666 remix of Moving Forward.

    I think Paradoxon is a way old song of theirs, before their EP. If I can get a hold of it, I'll get you a link to download it.

    Great stuff, reminded me of Editors and Interpol actually... They're dead cert to hit it big time, sooner rather than later. Can't wait to see them live!
