The L.E.D.S


I can haz synth? Yes you can and lots of it, [heart] the L.E.D.s. The evolution of The L.E.D.s began four short years ago in Christchurch, NZ - courtesy of Marcus Thomas and Blair Parkes who, in 2004, formed "Thomas:Parkes" after both being involved in several guitar-based bands over the previous years. After writing and releasing the album "Big Machine" as Thomas:Parkes, Marcus and Blair decided to expand the sound.

I can haz synth? Yes you can and lots of it, [heart] the L.E.D.s. The evolution of The L.E.D.s began four short years ago in Christchurch, NZ - courtesy of Marcus Thomas and Blair Parkes who, in 2004, formed "Thomas:Parkes" after both being involved in several guitar-based bands over the previous years. After writing and releasing the album "Big Machine" as Thomas:Parkes, Marcus and Blair decided to expand the sound. The introduction of Helen Greenfield (formally of "Barnard's Star") to the line-up introduced more feline synth, luscious vocals, and a dash of strings to the mix. This, of course, made the name "Thomas:Parkes" not only obsolete but incorrect and the search for a new name began. After exchanging many txts and e-mails and much googling (to ensure the name was unique); Helen, Marcus, and Blair settled on the name "The L.E.D.s" - not least because it was a cool name and the omnipresent light emitting diodes on their gear... (mmmm) Towards the end of 2006, the L.E.D.s released their debut album titled "...we are the L.E.D.s".

The album contained several singles that charted in the RDU Top 10 and led to the eccentric Dr Hitchcock including "Modernist Cut" on the compilation "This is not the chch sound". Following the production of a music video for the second single "Rumba", The L.E.D.s asked drummer Daniel Batkin-Smith to join the band in an effort to step up the live performances. The L.E.D.s continue to use programmed beats mixed with live drums during their live performances and still manage to record and write new material despite being split between Christchurch and Wellington. Together their powers combine to create catchy, electro-fuelled pop and a super-good time. After several synth-licious, crowd-pleasing performances in Christchurch and a tour as part of the Karajoz Public Address Great Blend, the L.E.D.s are currently working on a new album, scheduled for release in the first half of 2008. 100% New Zealand Music www.theleds.co.nz www.myspace.com/theleds Read more on Last.fm.
