Victorian funksters and Danger Mouse’s favourite band The Shortwave Set headline Brick Lane’s infamous 93 Feet East and Dry Bar.

The band's debut album The Debt Collection was highly regarded by critics and featured in many discerning end of year polls for 2005 and championed across a wide cross section of media tastemakers. Zane Lowe made it his Album of the week on his acclaimed BBC Radio One show, and Lauren Laverne has supported their singles, making Is It Any Wonder her XFM record of the week, and highlighting Slingshot on the BBC television review programme The Culture Show. The Times made The Debt Collection it's album of the week, and it also featured at number 3 in the Observer Music Monthly 'First Ten' for July 2005.

Danger Mouse expressed his admiration for The Debt Collection and invited them to act as support for Gnarls Barkley, it came as little surprise to anyone that it was announced in 2007 that The Shortwave Set were to record their follow up album with the renowned producer in the chair.

As well as this the band have racked up many a fine gig, touring with the likes of Gnarls Barkley, Goldfrapp, Moby and most recently Spiritualized.

“A treasure trove of fuzzy psychedelia, jerry-built pop and seemingly limitless good vibrations” – The Guardian

“A tasteful, mellifluous affair” – The Independent

“Samples and melodies so beautiful” – Drowned In Sound
