I've had their track 'Dressed In Dresden' on my pod now since about january time, but I'm genuinely guilty of forgetting about these, 'Pigeons' totally went over my head if I'm honest.
Anyway, the band is from New York ( like all the best bands, oops a bit opinionated, sorry) and here is a quote from their official site on what's insired them:
"We were driving across the U.S. listening to Moroder/Molton style disco; French House & minimal techno; Post-Punk favorites like Young Marble Giants, Wire, The Cure & New Order; Black Star, Dilla, De La Soul vintage hip-hop; 60’s mod, garage & girl groups and loads of Studio 1/Trojan era ska & dub. When we got back, we wrote ‘Dressed In Dresden’ over a couple of days in the studio and decided this was a band we wanted to be."Now that's a list! check out their website for more information, they are also on Warp Records so check them out there too.
Their latest single which is due for release on 15/16th of November will be 'Commotion' and will be their second single off their new self titled album. Here is the video for first single, 'Pigeons' and also audio for new single, 'Commotion' and first track 'Dressed In Dresden'... Enjoy.
