While the rest of the music industry has found a new best friend in the vocoder and merely continues their long-standing alliance with the synthesizer, The Perfects, a dance-rock band from Baltimore, Maryland, are one of the few that seamlessly meld those futuristic sounds with the melodic core of yesterday. Echoing the works of Duran Duran, The Cure, and Nine Inch Nails, The Perfects are quickly cultivating a fan-base as rabid as those in the early days of music videos, when their inspirations ruled the airways.
Founding member Ric Peters started the band in 2005. Heading into the studio with Nic Hard in 2006 (The Bravery, The Church), he came back with the self-titled EP that won over critics and new fans alike. 3 years later, The Perfects return with Future Automatic, an album sure to titillate the eardrums and send people to the dance floor, while still maintaining its artistic integrity. After an early leak, Ric Peters decided to follow in the footsteps of Radiohead and make the album available as a free download. So, if you are looking for dark, Robert Smith-inspired dance rock that combines broodiness and dance beats, you have no excuse; head over to http://www.theperfects.com and you won’t be disappointed.
