Operators @ BV Northside 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
operators-22

Operators is the latest endeavor of Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), featuring drummer Sam Brown (Divine Fits, New Bomb Turks) and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Devojka. The trio have been prepping their debut album, and just recently shared the LP's lead single "True". Operators deal in expertly-crafted, dance floor-ready synth pop that's right along the lines of Boeckner's work in Handsome Furs. And much like all other Boeckner projects live, Operators also bring it. You can take a listen to "True" at the bottom of this post.

Operators will fittingly be touring with Future Islands throughout August/September. During that run, the trio will break off for a headlining show of their own at Schubas on August 30. Support will come from Cincinnati garage-pop outfit Tweens, and advance tickets are on sale now.

All known Operators dates and a stream of "True" lie after the jump...
