Hmm. Well, I had not heard of them. First impression: Elvis Costello and the Attractions 2.0

But I probably wouldn't think that if I'd just heard the music and not seen the video.

Hmm. I think I'd need to listen to more, as I tend to concur with Badger.

It's the equal weight in the mix given to the keyboards that make them sound like Elvis C. But if you listen to the lyrics there are distinct emoh influences as well - or maybe that's the satire. If they add some clezma we could have a whole new sound.
