if you know what's good for you, you'll have been checking out the flawless set of tips for 2010 by Illegal Tender. if so, you'll have already come across the following band.
The Shimmer are a duo comprised of brother (David) and sister (Jade) who make obscenely good, dark pop music. currently recording in a fort, the forthcoming output from this band is something i am awaiting impatiently. i have a bunch of demos from when The Shimmer were The Mono and if their new stuff sounds even remotely close to those songs, they are going to blow your little socks off. dirty guitars meet yelping synth in dark room and can't help dancing together.
& apparently they used Gary Numan's synths for the track below. yow.
