The duo that is Mommy and Daddy, punk rock diva Vivian Sarratt and equally punk rock rage machine Edmond Hallas, have surfed on a recent wave of success in New York and are now treating us in the UK to their debut album. Their combination of angular, and often sultry, art punk vocals, jagged guitars and discordant keyboards create a sound part way between no wave and discopunk – Imagine a collaboration between Ladytron, Le Tigre and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and you’d be part of the way there. Vivian and Edmond sing with a sassy, staccato delivery punctuated by yelps of pain and pleasure that mirror the glitchy keyboards and dirty raw bass. They have a distilled yet uncontrived coolness and a full sound with an apparent lack of complexity. ‘Live How You Listen’ is a blinding debut and a must have.
