Manchester, England, GBR

We are 2 brothers David and Neil and we make up the militant analogue beast that is Shmoo. We have fused live electronic dance and melodic indie styles together. if you were to discribe our sound you could say we are a sonic mash up of Kraftwerk,Air,MGMT and Daft Punk.. Enjoy!!! X


"We are electronic musicians."

"We perform live with analog synthesizers and not a computer."

"We are a band with no guitars."

Shmoo are brothers David and Neil Newport. Their vocal melodies have a hint of Muse/The Killers with a punkier edge ... combined with their trade mark vocoder sound (think Beasty Boys "Intergalactic" / Daft Punk "Harder Better Faster Stronger").

They pile up layers of dirty analog beats with thrashing drums alongside deliciously retro synths (think Air's Moon Safari), soaring arpeggiators and hard hitting bass lines.


M.E.N - "a sonic mash-up between Kraftwerk, MGMT and Daft Punk"

BBC Introducing - "a junior Orbital, Shmoo mix mammoth dance, raw garage band and full-blown pop brilliantly."

City Life - "a band Kasabian could never dream of becoming"
