Who Made Who – Hype Machine: Lose Control 2
The men on stage had heavy accents, mustaches and suspenders. Was this a twisted indie take on German barbershop quartet music? No, it was one of the biggest surprises at SXSW. Denmark’s Who Made Who make infectious dance pop, with a heavy disco lean. What sets them apart is the perfect vocal tandem of bassist Tomas Hoffding and guitarist Jeppe Kjellberg who channel Brian Ferry at a faster RPM.
Kjellberg used brilliant and spacey sweeps of slide guitar that accented the Studio 54 shuffle beats of drummer Tomas Barford with hearty aplomb.
The band had even the thickest sticks in the mud bopping to their best bassy hybrid of electronica, psychedelia and disco.
