Plastic Operator (MySpace) is really refreshing, thank you. The globe-trotting electronic duo hailing from Montreal and Antwerp met at Westminster's University in 2001 when they were both studying audio production. And it shows. These two play melodious, atmospheric electro-pop that's clearly plays dues to the originators of the genre, from New Order to OMD, while simultaneously playing in a style that's current and modern.
These guys sound like a harmonious merging of 80s electronic, glitchy synth-pop of the 21st century, and the crisp, clean post-punk that came back with a vengeance in recent years.
