Bang Bang Robot
Once upon a time, in the year two thousand four, in a land far removed from normalcy called the District of Columbia, there was a girl named Kiki, who knew a girl named Karen, who knew a girl named Katie, who knew a girl named Jamie who knew a boy named Aaron. Bored with government, gangs, and guns, they thought it would be fun to form a gang of their own. They played with instruments and called themselves Five Four. Soon Five Four played all over the east coast at music venues, radio stations and music festivals. Playing for crowds and governments servants alike fans screamed out 'It's a dynamite sound!ï¿½ Five Four has a sound that is minimal, slightly twangy guitar hooks, early O.M.D.-ish style synths, punchy basslines, and the vocals that ooze dark innocence. Very danceable, yet not in that godawful Neo-New Wave/Electroclash way. In 2005 the band released it's first EP, Dream of you Dead, containing songs that leave you with hope, despair and a smile. In late 2006, Five Four released a full length album, Space Age Love. In April 2008, Five Four released another full length album, Bang Bang Robot. The new album is blissed-out pure pop and rock with ethereal vocals, dreamy guitars interplaying with keyboards on top of a tight rhythm section. Sometimes dancey, sometimes spacey, always catchy. In times where happily ever afters rarely exist, Five Four takes you to a place where fairytales do come true.
