WhoMadeWho were formed in 2005 in Copenhagen, Denmark. They infectiously blend rock, dance and the love of David Bowie into a euphoric disco-mash. One can definitely hear the post-punk and new-wave influences. Groups such as Magazine and A Certain Ratio come to mind.
The band just released their sophomore album The Plot on Gomma Records. The lead single TV Friend opens with an ominous woodwind arrangement before lead singer Tomas Hoefding begins chanting "No, No, No" over a slick nu-disco beat. The song Trickster is full of funky bass lines and surf-esque guitar licks. Debbie Harry would approve!
If you are a fan of disco-revivalists Hercules & Love Affair or Aeroplane then this band is for you. So to give you a little taste of the album, here is the club mix for the track The Plot as well as TV Friend.
