They're XXX, dancing under technicolor lights, and eccentrically electronic. They are KOPPS and they'll be performing at our holiday party this Saturday, Dec. 15. The first time I heard of KOPPS, I was impressed. Not only was it a video of them performing one of my favorite Eurodance songs live, but they gave Alice DeeJay's "Better Off Alone" the justice it deserved in a way that left me desiring to jump through the computer screen, transporting myself back through Time and Space to be on The Bug Jar's dancefloor in Rochester. Luckily for you, if you watch and feel the same all you'll need is patience until Saturday at Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar.
KOPPS, self-proclaimed to be "CrazySexyCreepy," definitely has a seductively unusual sound. It draws you in with its moments of experimentation, dance and soaring vocals. My favorite tune "Mourning Sex (feat. Joywave)" is strange and entrancing, with chopped vocals, heavy percussion and perfectly timed peaks and breaks. Their current EP Fuck Jams has sexy panting and well orchestrated electronic instrumentals provided by writers of the album Patricia Petrone, Kyle O'Hara, and Daniel Armbruster.
Also if sexual innuendos (or blatant references) are your jam, you'll enjoy their websites. A disclaimer on their Bandcamp page for their EP reads, "for erections lasting longer than 4 hours, please seek immediate medical attention."
Here's the whole EP, give em' a listen.
