Californian darkwave duo Mannequin presents a pulsating and straightforward sound, comparable to 80’s acts such as Das Kabinette, Iron Curtain or Clan Of Xymox. Characterized by driving bass-lines, melodic synths and deeply buried vocals, the songs are dark yet danceable.
Starting early 2017, the band quickly wrote material for 2 EP ‘Singles’ and ‘Factions’, which were combined on the tape for release in December that year. 2018 saw the band focusing on developing their live sound and starting to tour around California and the West Coast. They also self-released a split-cassette with fellow tourmates Post Tropic.
Recently, the band is working on their debut album, set for release later this year.
