"I ran into her on computer camp"... was that in Bergen, Norway? The synth-driven duo with a slick devotion to red tracksuits are back with "the most extravagant single in history". Datarock's new single 'Catcher In The Rye' comes as a designer toy with a USB stick that features 110 tracks, 1500 photos taken at their shows across 33 countries, 20 music videos, and Never Say Die, a brand new hour-long concert film. Definitely extravagant, and a novel idea, if you think about it.

Generally lumped in with fellow electro-rock revivalists LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and Klaxons, Datarock are the self-proclaimed peak of pop evolution. They deliver Devo-esque disco with post-punk licks, effortlessly traversing between four/four Groovebox rhythms and spacey melodies. They are festival favourites across North America, Europe, Asia and South America, as renowned for their onstage aerobics and uptempo performances as they are for their covetable tracksuits.

Datarock are in Australia for Groovin the Moo but are bringing their shimmery sonic soundscapes to the Oxford Art Factory this Thursday. It'd be a smart idea to grab tickets and get a pair of wraparound Porsche sunglasses quick.
