The Sex Has Made Me Stupid

Song: The Sex Has Made Me Stupid
Artist: Robots in Disguise
Album: We’re In the Music Biz

Robots in Disguise are a female rock/electro band from the UK. Dee Plume and Sue Denim formed the band in 2000 after meeting at the University of Liverpool. Their name no doubt must be a wink to The Transformers… but since forming way before the recent big screen adaptation of the cartoon and toy line I wonder if they regret it a bit. Does it hurt their hipster cred? I suppose, in retrospect, that it couldn’t be nearly as bad as the 1999 formed “I Am The World Trade Center.” Ouch.

“We’re In the Music Biz” is the bands sophomore album, after a self-titled effort that was released in 2001. Their sound is a mix of guitar, electro beats, and female attitude. I really like the single “The Sex Has Made Me Stupid,” which is catchy, sexy, and relentlessly tongue-in-cheek. It’s a great mix of guitar lick and catchy beats with a catchy chorus. Catchy, catchy, catchy! The remainder of “We’re In the Music Biz” is similar, a mix of wink-wink lyrics, driving guitar and vaguely new wave grooves.

Check them out.
