Background:
California-based dance duo Guns 'n' Bombs have been called "America's answer to Justice" and have received praise in the blogosphere for their "dirty robot rock." Consisting of Filip Nikolic (the bassist for Ima Robot) and Johnny Love (founder of Chicago's Opaque Project), the group formed in late 2006 and in 2007 released an EP of original material on hip French label Kitsune (home to Hot Chip and Digitalism and run by Daft Punk co-manager Gildas Loaec). Pitchfork declared that GNB's debut album "should make a serious impact on the culture of U.S.-bred dance music", the Montreal Mirror called GNB "unpretentious and unforgivingly badass... they give Paris's New French Touch a run for its money", and the group's remixes of buzz acts like the Gossip, Klaxons, and the Teenagers have wound up in the sets of superstar DJs like Paul Van Dyk and Benny Benassi; Chromeo's Dave 1 called GNB's treatment of their song "Fancy Footwork" the "best remix anyone's ever done of us." Having just completed remixes for Ghostface Killah and Sebastien Tellier, GNB is currently working on its debut album.
