Ignition’s Cold, Oxygen’s Pale
(2011, Substitute Records) France.
I met Neonbirds’ Leon when we played together in paris at L’international. Neonbirds is an electro duo with rock touches (electric guitar and bass)
There is many influences, as New Order or sometimes Soft Cell…
Their synthesizers and rhythmbox’s sounds are researched and worked. When you see them live, they bring all their machines with, what bring a human touch in the electro world.
One song you’ll remember after seing them live is 01212 and its catchy chorus.
I love a lot Mechanics‘ ambiences and Substitutes‘ Finale.
You’ll find here a beautiful video clip for Substitutes : http://vimeo.com/32733560
I love the mix between guitars, synths and vocals on Surfer Echo.
I do like the energy on Blood is Colour.
Some good songs, a band to follow !
