Fan Death

These sultry 80s beats (which wouldn't feel out of place in a Flashdance-esque escapade) will surely have hearts melting and eyebrows flickering upwards everywhere. Not since MGMT burst in and psych'd up summer will a band get so much hype in 2009...
It is blissed out pop which reeks of cool. "Veronica's Veil" grasps the 80s infused sound to it's fullest extent whereas "The Constellations" sounds more like a subtle Kate Bush if she had it off with Little Boots (ooh er).
Fan Death are everything you need in a band, nothing too serious yet nothing to flippant with a head for merging good beats with non substantial lyrics. "The Best Night" would make you silly not to dance where "The Son Will Rise" somehow reminds me of Rocky (in only a good way- a song you could power walk too, no doubt). Rather than the noir Gothic pop that is stemming from London 'Fan Death' have a multi-coloured glow beneath the torrid exterior as eerie noises emit from synth and voice.
Or if you are Wikipedia:
"Fan death is a South Korean urban legend which states that an electric fan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can cause the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside. Fans manufactured and sold in Korea are equipped with a timer switch that turns them off after a set number of minutes, which users are frequently urged to set when going to sleep with a fan on.[1]"
