Set List

  • "Church and Law"
  • "Kelly"

When Saints Go Machine is an electro-pop quartet from Copenhagen, Denmark, whose chilly, angular — yet enticingly danceable — tunes have caught the attention of tastemakers at home and abroad. The band's hard-to-pin sound, equally inspired by clubland standards and experimental art-pop, has evoked comparisons to Arthur Russell's left-field disco and Depeche Mode's dystopian New Wave, as well as the ethereal croon of Antony Hegarty.

Hear two tracks from When Saints Go Machine's new album, Konkylie, on this week's edition of "World Cafe: Next."
