I actually came to know about this band (which I mentioned in my interview) while listening to the soundrack of the game Little Big Planet 2. The song on the OST was "Ghosts" and I immediately fell in love with it. I like those happy songs with melancholy cadence and this was definitely one. So I obviously went looking for other songs about this band and found other tracks like that one, "Destroy Everything You Touch" for example. Their genre is experimental. Not really pop neither pure electronic. Just awesome sound in my opinion! Some songs are actually very dark and I was totally not surprised when I heard their record playing in goth clubs!
