Silicon Teens - Sun Flight

Inasmuch as they ever actually existed The Silicon Teens were pretty much a joke band. I think the general idea was they they were supposed to be a manufactured group doing sparky synthpop covers of '50s and '60s classics, and were supposed to be admired ironically for that. But it was all a front, and the front was part of the act too. The Silicon Teens were none other than Daniel Miller, founder of Mute Records.

Here's a b-side of theirs, the haunting Sun Flight. Simple melodies and a naive vocal, but the keyboard sounds are completely gorgeous. The production is just about perfect, especially when the distorted spoken vocals cut in an everything becomes too emotional. Diabolically clever.
