French-American post-punk band DTCV (pronounced Detective) was formed in Los Angeles in 2012 by Vivarock and Fiat Lux. These are pseudonyms; both band members are currently being hounded by Interpol (the pop group, not the crime-fighting organization) and prefer not to reveal their profligate involvement with other, better-known rock combos, or with writing films, novels, and Broadway musicals, or with acquiring post-graduate degrees in international politics from the Sorbonne. The group has been compared by possibly not-entirely-sober music writers to Stereolab, Sonic Youth, Mission of Burma, and “post-Nico Velvet Underground with Debbie Harry on vocals.” The first single, “Miley Cyrus Wins the Race”, is an impeccable mix of post-shoegaze, powerpop.
