Stereolab are an Anglo-French avant-pop band formed in London in 1990. Led by the song writing team of Tim Gane and Lætitia Sadier, the group’s sound features influences from krautrock and 1960s pop music, often incorporating a repetitive motorik beat with the use of vintage electronic keyboards and female vocals sung in English and French. Their lyrics have political and philosophical themes influenced by the Surrealist and Situationist movements. On stage, they play in a more feedback-driven and guitar-oriented style. The band also draw from funk, jazz and Brazilian music, and were one of the first bands to be dubbed “post-rock”.
