Thieves Like Us are two Swedes and one American living in Berlin, Paris, and Milan. Neither Andy Grier (vocals, guitar), Björn Berglund (synth), nor Pontus Berghe (percussion) live in their home countries, and none of them probably ever will again. They first met at a picnic in East Berlin in 2002. Since then, they have also lived together in London, Paris, and New York City. The trio can often been seen in and around night clubs, but they fit awkwardly there. Thieves Like Us were first discovered by the French imprint Kitsuné who released their single, Drugs In My Body in 2007. They make pop music with a vintage electronic feel. Many times it makes you dance, other times it makes you feel strange and wonderful. Back in the day, they probably would have signed a contract in blood with Factory Records. 2008's Play Music, their first album, would definitely have fit the bill. BBC Music called it "consistently exciting ... a contender for electronic album of the year." A writer for the legendary entity Amoeba Music exclaimed: "I have managed to fall deeply in love with this band in a matter of weeks. It is getting to the point where I don't want to listen to anything else." With Again And Again, their second album, the band sculpts their vintage electronic sound into honest, sentimental pop. The bonus remix CD includes Again And Again Remixed, a sister album designed to expand the original project. Offerings include dance versions of the original material and remixes contributed by friends from Europe and the U.S. including California outfit Nite Jewel, French synth sensations Minitel Rose and Retraite, as well as the young Italian Cécile of Gomma fame, Kamp! from Poland, Sundance and the Norwegian Rikslyd. Ranging from joyful to melancholy, dreamy to danceable, this album brings new dimensions to Thieves Like Us' signature sound.
