Black Box Recorder
Black Box Recorder debuted in 1998 with England Made Me, a collection of lyrically sophisticated pop tunes . They followed this up with The Facts of Life, which gave them their first (and, so far, only) hit with the single of the same name. Their third album was Passionoia. There is also a 'best of' album, The Worst of Black Box Recorder.
Musically, the group are influenced by trip hop, ambient music, and French electronic groups such as Air. However the lyrics to these lush and romantic melodies are frequently bleak, ironic or sarcastic: obvious influences are Ray Davies, Morrissey and Pulp.
