DIE ROBOT

Die Robot - technopunk

Die Robot is an electro industrial band from Portland, Oregon. This is future rock in a post-industrial age. Their sound straddles rock and electronic with a wide appeal. Unique, haunting, and romantic, Die Robot is full of angst and soul with the groove of a predatory animal. It all started in the summer of 2012, when former members of Pop Dolls, Vince Christian and Barbie Saint, moved to Portland where they met Angela Johnson. Vince provides powerful vocals and a fierce performance. Barbie's strings are dark and passionate, combining not only bass and guitar, but synthesized leads simultaneously. A unique sound accomplished with special custom gear designed for her by Retro Mechanical Labs. Angela's rhythms fill the dance floor, and her upright electronic set accentuates an engaging performance and Uriel, the illuminated, in keys and synth, producing an intense electronic soundscape.
