Thieves Like Us are two Swedes and one American living in Berlin, Paris, and Milan. They are one of the only multi-nationals that won't exploit you. Mexicans love them. The French love them. Americans love them. The Japanese love them. Neither Andy Grier (vocals, guitar), Bjšrn Berglund (synth), nor Pontus Berghe (percussion) live in their home countries, and none of them probably ever will again. They first met at a picnic in East Berlin in 2002. Since then, they have also lived together in London, Paris, and New York City. The trio can often been seen in and around night clubs, but they fit awkwardly there. Thieves Like Us were first discovered by the French imprint KitsunŽ who released their single, "Drugs In My Body" in 2007. They make pop music with a vintage electronic feel. Many times it makes you dance. Other times it makes you feel strange and wonderful. Back in the day they probably would have signed a contract in blood with Factory Records.

2008's "Play Music," their first album, would definitely have fit the bill. BBC Music called it "consistently exciting ... a contender for electronic album of the year." A writer for the legendary entity Amoeba Music exclaimed: "I have managed to fall deeply in love with this band in a matter of weeks. It is getting to the point where I don't want to listen to anything else." They are just about to release their second album, "Again and Again," and continue their non-stop world tour...

Praise for Thieves Like Us:

"Lovers of new wave and electronica would love to march with the electronic trio's combination of intentionally barren soundscape and booming collection of both up-tempo and down-tempo beats." - FHM

"Thieves Like Us deconstruct pop songs, warping them into skulking, introspective shadows existing somewhere between the likes of Cut Copy and Gang of Four. - It's A Trap

"Thieves Like Us have embedded cross-European club vibes deep into the shiny grooves of their spinning revelry." - Bearded Magazine

"With their hazy simplistic vocals and their energetic beats, it's not surprising that they list their influences as "high heels and lasers." Don't miss this fresh dancefloor daze!" - URB Magazine (web and print editions)

"Unlike bands that take New Order and Daft Punk influences and twist them into some kind of bizarre hyrid, Thieves Like Us brings in the influence straight up, and somehow in that they've created something totally fresh. Their music is very electronic, but it feels very organic." - AZLTron
