Electro-pop in the UK is shaping up to be Little Boots and La Roux’s year but Brooklyn duo Telepathe might just prove to be the surprise success that break into the mainstream. Releasing their fantastic debut album ‘Dance Mother’ back in January, their style is reminiscent of the aforementioned, La Roux, but with the vocals tamed a little, in a good way.
Their music sounds effortlessly cool in a way only sultry electro can. Cultured by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, producer of ‘Dance Mother’, ‘So Fine’ would have slotted perfectly on Yeah Yeah Yeah’s recent album, ‘In Your Line’ is the subtle seduction while ‘Chrome’s On It’ showcases their jolting abrasive side when it counts.
Don’t be confused with other scene bands pushing their style over their substance. Telepathe have both, but it’s the duo’s music that steals the show.
