Still not convinced that the alternative 80's are back? Then perhaps Battant can convince you.
Even if Battant are part of the electronic scene (their album "No head" is released on the Kill the DJ-label) they have not much to do with it musicwise.
This trio from London are exploring the female post-punksounds from the early 80's and so you come to bands like The Slits, Siouxsie & The Banshees or The Popgroup.
It's more than just a tribute as all the songs are accompanied with a synthbeat that could have come from an old Factory-album.
Critics will say that in the 80's there were hundred bands like these and you have to agree with them, but is it a bad thing to bring such music back?
In the world of the current Lady Gaga's, we're in desperate need of some women with balls and that's certainly no problem for Chloe who swings throughout the songs like a renewed Siouxsie. A very nice surprise this one!
