We created a little world of music and songs to evoke 'the way the future might seem when imagined in the past.'
Our sound has been associated with electro-swing, lounge, dark cabaret, dream-pop, easy listening, chanson and gypsy jazz but we just call it 'Antique Beat'.
They say that we're a 'much loved and lauded London alt. pop-art-pop band, poised forever on the brink of international obscurity"..
And it is true: after seven albums, myriad Eps, millions of youtube plays, tours and many collaborations with animators, film makers and other artists, we remain a sort of cult band, rather on the edge of things.
If you are reading this, I imagine it's probably because you're a bit of an outsider too. We keep going because of the amazing love and support we have received from friends, fans and people like you. So thank you.
