Plastic Operator are a Canadian and Belgian duo that met while in audio school in London. They released their first album this past summer (sometime between May and June, I am getting conflicting dates) after the success of their single Folder (with a remix by Styrofoam).
The comparisons to the Postal Service are inevitable (I mean it is kinda really obvious), but all groups have other bands as reference points. Besides when did the last Postal Service album come out anyways? I tend to over look similarities if the music is good.
They are getting pretty good reviews and after a first listen, I cannot disagree.
