Printed Circuit is not tired and retro-futurist, nor is it electroclash or straight-forward electro. It’s a unique twist on electronic pop - a carefully-crafted, bright, melodic, innovative and refreshing approach which never fails to get a crowd moving!

Biography

Printed Circuit is the pseudonym for 25 year old Claire Broadley, who has been making electronic music since she was 19 years old. Claire has recorded for various influential electronic labels such as Tigerbeat6, Irritant, Elefant and 555... her first album, 'The Adventure Game', was released in 2002, and she has regularly shared stages with electronic and indie greats such as Max Tundra, Momus, Chicks On Speed, Le Tigre, Kid606 and Numbers.

Although the 1980s references come thick and fast in Printed Circuit reviews, that's only one of her influences. Claire’s attention to detail and high standard of production ensures innovative programming that gives her music life. In 2004, Claire released a new record on 555, ‘Byte Me’, which showcases her move towards upbeat, robotic electronic pop. She also toured the UK, played her third Berlin show and ended the year with two Christmas gigs and a concert at midnight on New Years Eve.

2005 sees Printed Circuit tour the world, taking in more than eight countries including Japan, Israel and the USA. She will be joined on the tour by Andrew Raine on back-up synth and programming.
