80s New Wave marries Indie Rock in this Danish foursome. Dark, moody, catchy, and sometimes upbeat are words to describe this Danish Nu Gaze/Noise-pop group. FCC on 4. RIYL: Depeche Mode meets Franz Ferdinand. Favorites: 1, 5, 4.

1. (3:53)*** Fast. Dark and brooding. Descending guitar riff intro with a hypnotic drum beat that sounds like it’s from Franz Ferdinand, then an edgy guitar riff that’s addicting.
2. (6:29) Mid. “Thriller”-like intro in the first 1:00 then bursts into this mixture of synth and roaring guitar distortions. Noiseeee. Makes you space out.
3. (3:52) Slow. Calm and airy. Upbeat, but in a chill way.
4. (3:51)* Fast. Surfy and upbeat. FCC “fucking” on 1:18. Sounds like Modern English’s “I Melt With You”.
5. (7:14)** Mid. Chill yet moody. Makes you want to space out. Distorted guitar riffs like in #2 but to a lesser degree of noise.
