Nipplepeople - Sutra

      Nipplepeople are mysterious electro-pop duo from Zagreb, Croatia. 
     They are acting under the mask and do not talk a lot about themselves, they prefer that their music does it for them.
     I like this single Sutra, great song and extravagant video.
    It is a pleasant experience to enjoy their live show, especially is interesting their bizarre costumes and masks, but underneth of them is hiding incredible voice and talent.

De Rosa

   De Rosa was a Scottish rock band from Bellshill, consisting of Martin Henry (vocals, guitar), Chris Connick (guitar), James Woodside (bass), Neil Woodside (drums) and Andrew Bush (piano/keyboards). The band released two studio albums - Mend and Prevention- to critical acclaim.

   De Rosa were noted for their use of guitar-based indie rock combined with Henry's personal lyrics sung in a Scottish accent. When asked about the importance of place in his lyrics, founding member and song-writer Martin Henry stated: "I guess in some small way I’m trying to give post-industrial Lanarkshire a place in culture."Although heavily influenced by the alternative rock music of the 1980s and 1990s, De Rosa's sound also referenced other sub-genres of music, with elements of slowcore, Scottish folk and electronic music. In later performances De Rosa began to use more synthesisers and drum machines in their live set, their sound moving away from the guitar-based rock of their debut material towards a fusion of electronic and traditional styles.
  This is also one of many underrated music, but if you like Interpol, you will like De Rosa too.

    Wolfsheim is a synthpop band from Hamburg, Germany.
    The band was founded in 1987 by Markus Reinhardt and Pompejo Ricciardi — they were inspired by the name of a fictional character from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

   Reinhardt's brother Oliver Reinhardt joined the band sometime afterward. After producing a demo tape, co-founder Ricciardi left the band and was replaced by Peter Heppner. Heppner had known the band from mutual friends and from growing up in the same neighborhood in Hamburg. Oliver Reinhardt departed the band, leaving the current lineup as Peter Heppner (vocals) and Markus Reinhardt (electronics).

    Very rare and special music group with extremely unique and beautiful voice, specially respected in Europe. 
   Their live performance is filled with sophisticated emotions mixed with melting electro beats.

         Enjoy! Let your emotions be your guide!!!
