Leeds-based electronic trio, Heads We Dance, will be the world’s first ever act to stream the entirety of their album – pre-release – on a dedicated iPhone application, the band revealed this afternoon.
The album, ‘Love Technology’ becomes available to hear through the band’s new app today, a full two weeks ahead of its digital release. It will be made available through iTunes and other online music stores on June 1, and ships physically on June 18.
Save the wait – all you tech-savvy iPhone-using music lovers get a chance to try the band’s music before you buy today, using the new application which is available now for iPhones and the iPod touch through the App Store.
TAs well as the album, fans can also check out the B-side to new single ‘When The Sirens Sound’, which features a guest appearance from Little Boots and is available to download today (18th May), plus remixes from Don Diablo and Frankmusik.
On top of that, the newly launched app includes exclusive photos, updates and a fan wall to chat to the band direct.
Heads We Dance have recently topped the Hype Machine chart twice in a week, been featured as the top breakthrough artist on wearehunted.com, and single ‘When The Sirens Sound’ was named a Popjustice ‘Song of the Day’.
A band of both the future and the past, Heads We Dance draw inspiration from the sci-fi visions of ‘Metropolis’, Philip K Dick, Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk to create 21st Century space disco dancefloor fillers.
Already starting to take on their contemporaries (The Presets, Cut Copy, Digitalism and Justice to name but a few) by featuring in the Top 10 most blogged artists on The Hype Machine, Heads We Dance have sold out singles featuring Frankmusik and Tepr, collaborated with Little Boots and received a much coveted Popjustice ‘Song of the Day’.
Most recently, the band’s version of Kraftwerk’s ‘Computer Love’ received more than a million downloads as part of the Buffet Libre DJs ‘Rewind 2′ project, which also included the likes of We Have Band, Miami Horror and Sportsday Megaphone.
