A German based, somewhat experimental, electro-pop band. Formed in 1998 by vocalist Valerie Trebeljahr along with guitarist Markus Acher, drummer Christoph Brandner and keyboardist Florian Zimmer.
The band blends nintendo type synths with live drum tracks, sampled noises and soft, touching, vocals. Although you'd think it sounds pretty weird, it doesn't. It sounds like good yet refreshing indie pop.
