I've been listening to a lot of dense and chaotic electronica recently (namely, Crystal Castles and Boards of Canada), so it's nice to hear a band attempting to reclaim bleeps and bloops as something a bit more intimate. Victoria and Jacob are an electropop twosome hailing from East London, who mix cutesy Kate Nash-esque cockney rambles with lo-fi electronica and little bits of acoustic guitar and glockenspiel.
Although their recent output has been a little more pretentious, with higher production values and low-level philosophy, I reckon there's a lot left to see from these two. And if you happen to live in London, they're performing a gig next friday with a free barbecue! Surely you can't say no to that?
