Leading New York power couple Mommy and Daddy (Vivian Sarratt and Edmond Hallas) stand out for their electroclash tag team style: when Viv sings and pushes buttons, Ed plays bass guitar; when Ed sings and hits the machine, Viv takes over on bass.
With sexy, hard-hitting drum machine beats, dirty, fuzzed-out bass lines and smoldering boy/girl vocals, Mommy and Daddy sounds like a steel cage match between Le Tigre, Motorhead, B-52s and The Misfits.
The duo released two critically acclaimed 7 inch singles and one full-length album, ‘Live How You Listen,’ on Big Cat Records (UK only) before putting out their first proper US release, ‘Fighting Style Killer Panda,’ on Kanine Records.
Following the success of their EP, Viv and Ed recorded their next album, ‘Duel at Dawn,’ before setting out to tour with Static Age, United States of Electronica, Chariots, and Eyes Like Knives. Live, they’ve been known to rip it up ‘like baby tigers on Ritalin’ (Drowned in Sound).
