Charm and Strange are Tom Scott and Harry Purser, one coming a formal jazz/classical background, the other a valve/analogue hardcase. They make music the hard way: capturing performances rather sequencing on computers. Using an arsenal of vintage gear, the duo mix up John Carpenter synths, lush orchestral arrangements and New-Wave beats. The sound is melodic, multilayered, raw and live. With an output spanning dark techno and acoustic/classic reworkings of trance classics, Charm and Strange are the perfect addition to the United roster.
