Pic Vicious are a band from California. First thing that caught my attention from them was the make-up they wear. That's probably why you'd do something like that. To get some attention, but then the music's gotta be good to keep your interests going and they've managed to do that as well.
Their music consists of dark synthpop that occassionally strays into the hip-hop/electro realm with tracks like 'Systematik'. Their music reminds me a bit of bands like Mount Sims, except with that added hip hop twist and theatrics which always make for a more interesting live shows.
They've released a self titled EP which they've been kind enough to send me. Here's a couple tracks 'Music Box' and 'Systematik', plus a great remix On Off On did for 'Who's Your Lover'. In addition here's their video for 'L.A. Dreamer', probably my favorite track from them.
