Anyone else heard of this group?

Great cd...kinda sounds like a mix of dido and bjork with a tad bit of aphex.

it's cool dance / chill out.

I think the lead vocalist has a wonderful voice.

i think there an acquired taste, none of my mates really like them. but the more i listen to the album the more i like it.
"There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didnít need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high - water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." - Hunter S. Thompson.

just realized this after having the "details" album for over two years. the track "hear me out" features a sample of brian eno's "an ending (ascent)". since that's one of my favorite songs ever it's featured in movies as "28 days later" and "traffic". just wanted to recommend it to y'all.

"Hide and Seek" is pretty amazing. Puts nearly every other use of the vocoder to shame.

How much this stuff is overplayed and overrated has really made me not like it very much.† I really don't know what I would've thought of it otherwise but just hearing it now, it's kind of disappointing.

I heard Hide and Seek a lot before I actually heard it all the way through.   Just a lot of clips and "isn't this weird?" and I figured an entire song like that would get boring.  I've grown to love the song in context.
