Where Devo, Polysics and New Order have left off, Last Year’s Model picks up the torch and blazes the way towards your sonic salvation.. Shooting forward while bouncing off the past, the band confines itself to a padded dance room (called NYC) populated by droids, humanoids and cartoon monsters. LYM filters the over stimulation for you and presents it in byte-sized chunks calibrated for your ears’ specifications. One part machine precision and one part nervous break-down, Last Year’s Model makes aggressive pop music for the commodore 64 inside the club inside your head.

There’s a punky, irreverent edge to the Last Year’s Model sound that doesn’t take itself too seriously (check out the video ‘Last Year’s Model For Vice President’ as evidence for the defence) clashing wonderfully with the inhuman mechanical beeps and bleeps.
Last Year’s Model… channel Devo’s punkier side, right down to the cheesy synths, hooky guitars, and a lead singer more prone to yelping than singing.
Up and coming synthpoppers Last Year’s Model… dress like Kraftwerk and sound like the bastard child of the Buzzcocks and A-Ha…
Last Year’s Model is… determined to eradicate lame music from the face of the earth.
What sets [Last Year’s Model] apart is a very well-developed sense of song craft.
Ladies and gentlemen, Last Year’s Model are what you are searching for: funny, punky and synthesized!
