They're from New York City, but formed during college in Massachusetts. They're quote hairy blokes, but the singer is, thankfully, the bald one (the Royal We support baldness). Their influences are eye-catching, supercool and clearly honest: Prince, Talking Heads, Daft Punk, The Cars, Prefab Sprout, David Bowie, Chic, Earth Wind & Fire, Roxy Music, Beach Boys, Kraftwerk, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, and - they're they are again - Scritti Politti.
I feel guilty posting a full song here, but I want you need to be able to click that little green arrow to understand why this band is so good, so I've posted a 90 second sample*:
