I love musicians who know their layering. Arrangement can sometimes be the most difficult part of the creative process of writing and recording a song. But this group took it to the next level on this album, incorporating much more synth work into their repertoire and distancing themselves from the raw sound that they'd developed as members of Joy Division.

What bands do you like that were formed by another band's end?
