Electronic pop music is making a resurgence with the help of the all-female band the Feathers. The group has been called the female Depeche Mode and their sound has been described as hypnotically beautiful, which are two descriptions lead singer Anastasia Dimou doesn't mind. SOUNDBITE: Anastasia Dimou, Feathers, saying (English): "I think in some songs that would definitely apply. But I also think there are a lot of dynamics. So, it's not just ambient music it's definitely, it has its peaks and its lows and all of that." The group consists of bassist Courtney Voss, keyboardist Kathleen Carmichael, and guitarist Destiny Montague. Each member comes with previous band experience and Montague said this group comes with less stress. SOUNDBITE: Destiny Montague, Feathers, saying (English): "It's actually surprising a lot less drama than any of the other bands that I've mean in." On the day we dropped in on them they were busy taking promotional photos. While it looked glamorous, the ladies are quick to highlight what they really love about the business. SOUNDBITE: Destiny Montague, Feathers, saying (English): "I think the best, I think we all probably would agree like traveling and touring and playing shows is really, that's really. I think on stage you've said it to, it's like where you feel most alive." The quartet will travel to the UK to support the release of their new album "If All Here Now" set for release on May 28th.
