Masquer (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Revolver
    “Swedish synth-pop outfit Masquer’s debut consists of pop hits with a dark edge” (Dazed Digital) Masquer entwine lonesome, broken guitar lines drowned in chorus with beautiful teen angst vocals and catchy synthesizers backed by lo-fidrum machines. They remind you of your favorite 80’s mixtape, and it hits you right there, like they’re channeling that poetic pop love from your past. The long awaited debut album “Cover My Face As The Animals Cry” had Scandinavian release September 14th, through Rough Trade distribution and was produced by Swedish artist and composer Per Egland. Their first single “Happiness” was released in May together with a remix by Swedish-German techno act The Field (Kompakt). “Happiness” was played frequently on national radio and Masquer recieved critical acclaim amongst music- and fashion blogs such as Dazed Digital and PSL. Next single included a remix by Swedish electronica artist Andreas Tilliander, and was also added to frequent rotation on national radio. The Stockholm based duo has performed frequently the past year and played at venues together with acts like Niki And The Dove and also toured as opening acts for artists like The Field and Asha Ali. They got booked for Swedish festival Way Out West, summer 2011, and played at the same venue as Warpaint and Radio Dept.
