80s and 90s inspired guitar led popsters

Taking their cues from the cream of the 80s and 90s alternative guitar scene, Abstraction Engine walk the tightrope between indie guitar textures and outright pop bangers. Boasting a mix of indelible melodies, earworm guitar lines, atmospheric keyboards and the hardest working rhythm section this side of the Ridgeway, their current set contains at least one moment of noise pop perfection and the best song Duran Duran never wrote. Also known to throw in a semi-ironic cover version on occasion, it’s entirely possible that you could hear your favourite guilty pleasure played alongside some of your new favourite songs.
