Electro-stars Man Without Country play Sheffield this week on the back of a rollercoaster two years.
A debut album, several singles and a string of festival appearances have marked the outfit out as ones to watch.
And yet, behind the radio airplay and dancefloor fillers are two lads from South Wales, recording many of their tunes at home.
However, thanks to some of the duo’s collaborators and support slots with the likes of Moby, Man Without Country have quickly transcended their Cardiff bedrooms.
Tomas Greenhalf – one half of the band with Ryan James – says: “It’s great these days, people like us can create something with a quality that’s almost studio standard from our own bedrooms.”
Now the duo are promoting their latest album, Maximum Entropy, with the addition of a drummer for the live shows.
Tomas says: “That creates a different feel. It’s a great combination.”
Man Without Country play Plug, Sheffield city centre, on Saturday. For tickets, see www.the-plug.com
