Amsterdam’s indie-electro duo Anderson crafts its glitchy compositions on the same proverbial laptop as The Notwist and The Postal Service, but where those acts are wallflowers at heart, Anderson comes from a more extroverted place, pairing Sufjan Stevens-esque songwriting with inclusive, Pet Shop Boys-inspired nods to club culture. The duo’s sophomore album, It Runs in the Family, an ambitious suite charting the desperate lives of an estranged family, has only been released in Japan so far, but the group is touring America ahead of a planned stateside release this summer.
