We Have Band (UK)
Matt & Kim (New-York, USA) CANCELLED
Hipster duo based in Brooklyn (USA) Matt & Kim do rock without guitar. In what may seem a minimalist fashion "just drums and a keyboard", they put up shows which linger long in the memory. Overflowing with energy, their songs abound with this joie de vivre and the joy they have in playing to their audience. Will they end up naked as in the clip which made them famous, in Time Square?
The Death Set (Sydney, AUS)
The Death Set is an electro-punk sensation from Baltimore, Maryland. Johnny Siera and Beau Velasco met each other in 2005 in Australia, before relocating to Baltimore. After two EPs, they recorded Worldwide. The album was greeted with great hoopla, fed by singer Santigold, who was herself cresting a wave of hype. Voted fifth best new group of 2008 by the English weekly NME, this American group plays a fast and efficient punk adorned with digital stridences, between Crystal Castles and Le Tigre..
