“Have I been sleep talking?”

Performance are a ridiculously fun guy/girl group from England. They're very new, and their influences are evident (think a synthpop Franz Ferdinand with some chirpy female vocals popping up sporadically - or an even better Matinee Club). This is not their single (that'd be the equally excellent Short Sharp Shock), but it's a standout of their work so far. Opening with a sprinkling of synth that's quickly joined by a shimmering dance beat, the song easily retains its momentum through its nearly four minutes, the best part being when the female backing comes in. Remember where you heard it first.... this band could be huge.

Well, good promo pics are extermely important. We all "judge a book by the cover," as they say. I'm always amazed when bands don't put effort into promo shots.
