If you want your music played in an Urban Outfitters, buy this record and do exactly as the Girls do. First, get a “the” name that doesn't really describe you (the band is all dudes). Then, get some synths and make sure to use tons of dance beats. Write some slightly catchy, lyrically vague choruses. Then, throw in some lightly distorted jerky guitars, but not too much -- synths are more important. Wait, don’t forget the fake accent (not that I know what accent it’s supposed to be -- maybe something between Devo’s vocal approach and a British twang; pronounce “er” words with “ah,” like, say, “disastah”). Then just to look right in the artwork, use black and white with some pink thrown in. Also, just to be different make sure the members’ eyes are marked out or even better; make sure they’re all wearing shades. Take this formula for each song, don’t stray too far and you might just be the soundtrack to ironic consumerism.
