Denton, TX's dream pop duo Fight Bite consist of vocalists/keyboardists Jeff Louis and Leanne Macomber, who craft a synth and drum machine-driven haze reminiscent of late-'80s/early-'90s acts like Julee Cruise and This Mortal Coil (as well as contemporaries like Beach House).
Macomber began writing what would become Fight Bite songs that didn't fit the mood of the louder, more rock-oriented bands she was in at the time; after seeing Louis' band Teenage Symphony play, she asked him if he would collaborate with her. They began recording in 2007 and their first single, Swissex Lover, earned praise from blogs such as Stereogum and Gorilla vs. Bear. The band made its full-length debut, Emerald Eyes, available for purchase that summer, and it was officially released that fall. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
