Those Infernal Devices

Infernal Devices met online over a shared love for electronic dance music and began writing music together shortly thereafter. After a long discussion one night about the joys of 80’s sci-fi and dance music, it was decided that this band would be a unique visual experience and take on electropop.

Do you remember the feeling when you saw Star Wars for the first time? That feeling of wonder and excitement? That’s what they’re aiming for. With this in mind, they holed up in their studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, writing, recording and constructing a live show to bring retro-futurism to the post-disco dance floor, combining floor-pounding beats with melodic hooks.

With previous remixes being done for ‘Not Enough’ by Xylos, ‘Leave Me Alone’ by Pretty Good Dance Moves featuring Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn & John (released on Township Records), ‘Wildkat’ by Flashmen (released on Crushed Records), and ‘Sleepyhead’ by Passion Pit the band has literally been all over the map. Their latest remix is of Savoir Adore and you can check it out below. It's a gorgeous rework that brings to mind St. Etienne or something straight out of the Thompson Twins back catalog more than pill munching rave zombies and maybe that's why I like it quite a bit.
