Mates of State
UK Tour

Paul Stimpson, Features Writer

After almost a decade, Connecticut (US) indie synth pop duo Mates of State are set to return to the UK for a seven date tour of Blighty.

After wowing us with their summer EP, ''You're Going To Make It'', this husband and wife duo are returning to these shores to perform their quirky synth pop for their baying UK fans.

The last time Mates of State were in the UK, they opened up for mid 2000s indie stalwarts We Are Scientists in 2006.

Their pedigree is unquestionable - with classics like ''My Only Offer'' and ''You Are Free'' appearing in US TV programmes like Gossip Girl and Ugly Betty, and newer instant hits like ''Staring Contest'' adding another dimension to the popular duo's sound.

Kori Gardner, vocals and piano/keys and Jason Hammel, drums and backing vocals, return to some of the UK's most intimate venues.
