- Indie/ Rock
Alt-rock and indie-doom band from New York, formed in 1997.
Key members include: Paul Banks - vocals and guitars, Daniel Kessler - guitar and vocals, Carlos Dengler - bass and keyboards (who left in 2010), Sam Fogarino (Dengler's replacement) and Greg Drudy - drums.
Often compared to Joy Division, their debut album in 2002, "Turn On The Bright Lights" paved the way for the follow-up sets ("Antics" and "Our Love To Admire") to be revered amongst the music press and fans alike.
Key songs include "NYC (New York Kiss)", "Obstacle #1", "Evil" and "The Heinrech Maneuver".
