Operators full band

Operators is the new wave project featuring Divine Fits members Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks, etc.) plus Devojka. We brought you a report from one of the group’s first gigs and video of them teaming with Japandroids to bash out Wolf Parade’s “This Heart’s On Fire.” Now comes Operators’ first public studio recording. It’s called “True,” and two things are obvious from the start: (1) This is definitely synthpop and (2) this is definitely Dan Boeckner. Still, even in the keyboard-driven Handsome Furs, we’ve never heard Boeckner’s howling growl set against such a sleek digital background. I’m excited to hear what else they’ve come up with, but for now, hear this.

No word yet on when “True” is going to come out, or what label Operators is working with.

    Sounds like Handsome Furs. Maybe Handsome Furs remixed.
