Soundcloud Pick: Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve – Diagram Girl

Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve is an electronic music duo made up of Erol Nolkan and Richard Norris, who hail from London. I’ve been peeking at their Facebook page and it describes them as the “warped-Balearic-meets-psychedelic-brotherhood of Erol Alkan and The Grid’s Richard Norris”, which sounds hella fascinating. It sounds like some hidden music paradise that you can only gain entrance to via a magical dance club, and it definitely sounds better than my own description. They’ve remixed some tracks by Franz Ferdinand (Ulysses), Interpol and Goldfrapp, which should have whetted your appetite by now, eh?

Diagram Girl sounds like a pleasant Pet Shop Boys-esque synth-pop ditty, but it’s accompanied by a monochromatic, surreal video that features mirrors, a tarot card marked “Labyrinthe” and a girl trapped in her dream. Damn, I like this band already.

It’s also worth noting that their debut album, The Soft Bounce will be released this coming July 1st on Phantasy Records, so…you heard it here first, and a million other music blogs.

I’m going to bend the rule slightly and feature the video too, because it’s actually worth watching.

Here’s the Soundcloud version if you’re not into music videos:
