Dan Boeckner is pretty much indie royalty at this point. His resume includes Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits, and with his latest project Operators, he is taking his sound to the next level. Operators marries elements from all projects including the dancey synth-punk of later Handsome Furs, the indie-rock jams of Divine Fits, and the punk roots of Boeckner’s early days playing in bands on Canada’s west coast.
In this episode, Operators display what many already know – that they’re one of the best live bands going. They infuse raw energy and emotion into electronic music showing that rock n’ roll doesn’t always need a guitar (although Boeckner plays one on “Cold Light”)
