The Independent Culture

PDS are one of the more incongruous acts in James Murphy's DFA stable: for one thing, despite their name, you can scarcely dance to them.

Instead, the Brighton duo of Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn provoke thought, their bleak critiques of culture and commerce, generation gaps and lockdown-love reminiscent of Gang of Four and The Fall. Musical Roundheads, their unadorned, effects-free music remains simple and straightforward, like a rock equivalent of the Dogme school of cinema.
