Zurich, Switzerland’s Disco Doom formed in 1996 with the core duo of guitarist/vocalist Gabriele De Mario and guitarist/bassist Anita Rufer.
With a rotating cast of drummers and longtime keyboardist Daniel Nievergelt, they crafted songs that updated the classic ‘90s indie rock of Superchunk and Pavement. RRKR (2002) and Binary Stars (2003) laid the groundwork for Disco Doom's sound, but 2008’s Dream Electric, which introduced more pop elements into their music, was their breakthrough album. They supported Built to Spill on a U.S. tour, then headed to Seattle, Washington to record with BTS’ Jim Roth; the results became 2011’s Trux Reverb, which reintroduced the band’s rock edge. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
