"Works better when sedated"

This track by Danish/Portuguese band M.A.U. (Man and Unable) (?!) showed up in my inbox and I was struck by how closely it resembles one of my favorite bands, Scissor Sisters, back when they were in demo form. Anyone who's heard the genius SS track Electrobix will certainly appreciate Toboggan. It's even got a female refrain towards the middle for that Ana Matronic touch. Towards the end, the track evolves into an instrumental electro-dance symphony of sorts. It's really pretty cool for a band I've certainly never heard of before. This track is the first from their upcoming third album. Yep, they have two older releases... I'll have to do some digging because this is very promising.

I first ear from this guys from a link to their "Prick I am" video on youtube. This was like 2/3 years ago and since then I've been following some of their releases.
They are really good but, as they are portuguese, they don't get enough international media attention and coverage.
