Voltaire Twins

Australia. I want to move there. Not only are they giving us Tame Impala, Empire of the Sun and still ever popular Neighbours but now Voltaire Twins too? Stop spoiling us!
Sunny electro beats head up against duel-vocals and driving rhythms songs such as "The Kate Bush" are reminiscent of Ladytron-via-We Have Band.
"London" combines a more broody sound and murky message (basically, people are really stuck up and won't want to be friends with you)/ "You'll never be friends with them/ Like I am" they croon sweetly. It's "Disco Intelligent Light" though which transcends the 'electro' genre and creates an instant dancefloor classic- sweat, bad dancing and hands up in the air (like you just don't care) would surely be factors if this song got played.
There is something which separates them from the dance scene of the moment, an air of something more than the 'scene'. If John and Jehn took up the synth and strove to create messy, electronic driven music it might sound like this.
