Operators is the new dance-rock project of Dan Boeckner, who you know from either Wolf Parade, Divine Fits, or Handsome Furs. The band also includes Devojka and fellow Divine Fits member Sam Brown. I saw them play their debut NYC show at Baby’s All Right during Northside last June, and their set blew me away.
Earlier in the week they released their debut release, an EP simply titled EP1. It’s described as “an upbeat, aggressively melodic collection of synth driven pop songs.” Let me tell you, that’s right on the money. The EP is out now, available for download from their online store. You don’t want to sleep on this one, trust me.
The EP features a stunning 5-song collection of songs, including the previously release single “True.” They’re currently on tour with Future Islands. Find the full list of tour dates posted below.
