Their logo was designed by Alex Cortès who also came up with Daft Punk’s helmets. Their debut was released by the hipper-than-hip Parisian label Kitsuné. The titles are certainly unusual: what about ‘IknowhowIfeel’ or ‘Tieduprightnow’? There’s a simple explanation. ‘My computer’s space bar is broken,’ says keyboard player Patrick Hetherington.
