Formed in the late 1970s by Sheffield-based computer programmers Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware, The Human League evolved into one of the seminal '80s electro pop bands. Fronted by former hospital porter, Philip Oakey, and featuring Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall, the band went on to record some of the most influential songs of the decade.

Axel Basquiat and Vincent T originate from Paris and make the kind of sun-kissed, effortless electro-tinged indie anthems that belie the fact that they're musical upbringing was based almost completely on British bands such as The Cocteau Twins and New Order. Perhaps ironically for a band that started out worshipping Britain's exponents of gloomy indie, The Penelopes now find themselves delivering big, multi-layered sparkly indie-pop, but that initial influence is there in the immediacy of the melodies. Brilliantly, the pair describe their sound as a “rainbow” of colour, or, for fans of food-based analogies, “like a big salad” with influences and themes tossed together. However they describe it and regardless of how you discover it, The Penelopes will brighten up your day.
