A fantastic indie pop/electronica band from Belfast made up of two of the coolest guys ever: Shaun Robinson (lead vocals/drums) and Rocky O'Reilly (guitar (left handed, to further add to his awesomeness), synth, and backup vocals). They made their big US breakthrough when touring with They Might Be Giants. They rock hardcore, so check them out.
