Brooklyn duo Shannon Funchess and Bruno Coviello worked separately for years on other projects (Funchess has contributed vocals to acts including Telepathe, TV on the Radio, and !!!) before bonding over a shared love of the obscure dark-wave band Clan of Xymox. Funchess is without question the focal point here, an androgynous and imposing contralto who sounds like Sisters of Mercy’s Andrew Eldritch inhabiting the body of a punk rock Grace Jones. Their new debut full-length is heavy on the dark ’80s influences, and Funchess’s singular and undeniably powerful delivery should be captivating live.

Amsterdam's Ravage! Ravage! plays a very danceable blend of new and cold-wave, that they like to call "rave-noir". Along with lead-vocalist Maarten's theatrical performance they make the perfect androgynous add to tonights bill.
