Manchester, England's Dutch Uncles make off-kilter pop that falls somewhere between the quirky danceability of Hot Chip and the arty precision of Field Music. The band are gearing up to release their fifth album, Big Balloon, via Memphis Industries and cite Berlin-era Bowie and Kate Bush's The Red Shoes as influences here. You can hear a bit of all that in "Streetlight" which is both crystalline and groovy. That song premieres in this post and you can listen to it, along with a couple other tracks off the album, below.

Dutch Uncles haven't made any plans to come to North America just yet, but they do have a UK tour starting right after the Big Balloon's release and all tour dates are listed below.
