30 Seconds interview: Bernard+Edith

If the Knife were from Whalley Range in Manchester rather than Sweden, then they may well sound like experimental synth pop duo Bernard+Edith. This musical pairing dream up unnerving, electronic sketches which wouldn’t be out of place adorning a Bela Lugosi horror. Look out for their forthcoming Poppy EP. You can also catch them at Soup Kitchen in Manchester at the SWAYS Records showcase as part of Independent Venue Week on 2 February.
