Not sure if this will come as a surprise to anyone, but the Romanian synth-pop scene is almost non-existent. There is, however, the mighty Omelette, and that’s all I need to be honest.

This trio from Bucharest is hands down one of my favorite live acts in the country right now. Dez, the lead singer, who dresses like David Bowie in his prime, but weirder, oozes charisma. Her two collegues have a similar sense of fashion, although their clothes are not so painted on, thank God.

There’s a good chance that if you catch them live, you’ll also see two dancers with them on stage, doing a bunch of crazy stuff. I won’t spoil it for you. Just remember that you have to see them live. Book a plan ticket to Romania.

Or you could just book them to come play at your local club. It’s up to you. But I guarantee you will love it.

Oh, yeah, they are also pretty fuckin great in the studio as well. Listen to “Sadie”, a song about an amoeba who doesn’t have sex, if you don’t believe me.

Never has a track about a type of cell or organism which has the ability to alter its shape, primarily by extending and retracting pseudopods sounded so good.

Afterwards, you might also try their latest single, “Oh, Baby!“, and the title tells it all.
