((Datarock)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

This band is going to be huge. Hell, they're already huge at home in Norway. But I mean, they're going to be huge, huge. It's only a matter of time before their single "FaFaFa" is played at every party/venue/bar you go to. I'm not kidding.

This electro-duo say their sound is the trinity of Talking Heads, DEVO and Happy Mondays. I say they are the trinity of dancetastic! This isn't dance-rock like LCD, MSTRKRFT, or any of those "type" of bands, this is more, well, positive feeling than that. It really makes you want to shake your hips in a happy way, and not in an "I'm going to dance because I'm deciding self-consciously to turn my back on traditional indie rock" sort of way.

There seems to be a joy in these songs that is lacking in some of their genre's contemporaries (Hot Chip being a notable exception). But what do I know. I don't even dance. But I do know DataRock are going to be huge.
