Temposhark: The Invisible Line

Temposhark is a typical UK band that goes over the top without stumbling along the way. Movie soundtrack honchos sit up and take notice: their debut album The Invisible Line opens with the great James Bond=esque Don't Mess With Me, a song will offend hardcore feminists, but hey - their outcry means free publicity, right?

The core of Temposhark is a duo: Robert Diament is the singer/songwriter and Luke Busby handles producing duties and is a songwriter as well. Mark Ferguson (bass) and Mathis Richet (drums) make it a quarter when they perform live. There's some Soft Cell in there, lots of Depeche Mode and a bit of R.E.M. The Invisible Line celebrates eighties electronic pop (Joy, Knock Me Out, Not That Big) and 21st century laptop goodness (Crime).
