For some artists, it will always be 1981. That's certainly the case with Xeno & Oaklander, who channel Speak and Spell-era Depeche Mode and early O.M.D. into spooky, springy songs full of clean-lined synthesizers and terse drum programming. They're not so much stuck in the past as committed to a mode of retro-futurism that will never go out of style, all the while maintaining a singular, original vision. Liz Wendelbo's breathy vocals slither across rubbery grooves while their synths slip teasingly out of key, proving that it's the imperfections that are so seductive.
