Mylo meets New Order; Blondie meets Daft Punk. You can hear the influences behind Cicada releases, but they've really developed a unique sound that resonates: an 80s retro warmth comped by a rich base of modern electro. With a strong history of singles, such as 'Electric Blue', 'All About You', 'Things You Say', and 'Cut Right Through' they've also established a global fan-base.
The band comprises Aaron Gilbert (also known as Mr Natural), Alex Payne, and Icelandic vocalist, Heidrun Bjornsdottir (formerly of Gloss and 4AD'S Gus Gus). Alex and Aaron have a wealth of experience in producing, making music, and running labels.
Cicada has a fresh new single out, "Falling Rockets", complete with a colorful music video. It will be released on November 4th, with a follow-up album in early 2009.
