The White EP, also featuring Daniel Merriweather and remixes from Mark Ronson, is out in early 2011.

What the US press is saying:

"You can dance to it. You can drive to it. You can really, really like it even halfway through the first song." - NYLON MAGAZINE

"Together, they have created a wonderfully strong collection of catchy pop melodies that are as danceable as their lyrics are…" - SELF PORTRAIT

"Inspiration of black comedy with lots of blood and gore…'Requiem' a must see video…" - PAPER MAGAZINE

The "Requiem" video also found its way to the homepage of MySpace UK for a 24 hour exclusive.

"London is practically a new home for us. Can't wait to come back for a February release." states Klarsfeld.

The Americans will sound off their soulful indie-rock, with a tinge of psychedelia, in front of their adoring fans at CMJ festivities, as well as launching their single "Requiem" at a hometown release party.
