Red-bearded viking and pop auteur David Berndsen mines the 1980's for inspiration in his retro-futurist analogue-feeling sound. Berndsen conjures influences from the likes of Michael Jackson to Kraftwerk to The Eurythmics, and fellow revivalists such as Glass Candy, Dreamtrak and Chromeo. World-renowned master beat-maker Hermigervill blends driving beats, samples and jagged electronica woven into occasional hypnotic analog theremin solos that transfix the room. Lead axe man PAPPA Sigurðarson thrashes complex leads while simultaneously backing them up with deliciously complementing rhythms. This results in a famous a sound that recreates an era and a distinct moment in time when music, costumes and aesthetics triumphed worldwide.
