It would be impossible for me to talk about this band, San Francisco electro-funk quartet, Birds & Batteries, without employing the same list of ever-tapped comparables: Kraftwerk, Talking Heads, Devo... etc. I will say though that Birds & Batteries take the CBGB art band formula and apply some second wave D.C. hardcore aesthetics, creating an emo synth pop hybrid that sounds noir-ish, clean and accessible.
"The Villain" is taken from their new EP, Up To No Good, which comes out in November.
