About Book of Love
One of the first wave electronic groups, Book of Love emerged out of the New York City scene in the mid 80s and was signed by the legendary Seymour Stein to Sire Records. On April 1, 1986, art-students-turned musicians, Susan Ottaviano, Ted Ottaviano, Jade Lee and Lauren Roselli released the band's debut album. Between 1986 and 1993, the band released four studio albums and had a steady string of influential club hits, including classics "Boy", "I Touch Roses", the ebullient "You Make Me Feel So Good" and "Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls/Tubular Bells" which crossed over on the Billboard Hot 100. The band's music was featured in the classic films: Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Silence of the Lambs and American Psycho.
The Secret Light
The Secret Light is a post-punk/darkwave band from an alternate universe, based in Portland, Oregon. Their music is a high-energy combination of melodic, dark, catchy, and noisy, blending various elements of goth genres with synthpop to form a dancey new sound of their own, and their anthemic songs tend to get stuck in your head.
Their sound is made up of driving bass guitar, heavily-effected glitchy lead guitar, cutting synthesizers played live on a keytar, and powerful male vocals drenched in delay. Under the hood, the band fully embraces modern music technology - their high-energy performance incorporates MIDI time-synced guitar/bass/vocal effects and their own light show.
