The Icecold Archbishop are a duo coming from the Indiana, U.S. Their music is a particular blend of B-52's, Three Jones, Devo and Talking Heads (these are the names that I find could fit better their music). They mix new wave, rock and whatever they have in their mind with fun but also ironic lyrics. Take "Packages", for example. Musically it remembers a little The Devo and the lyrics talk about the need of a good package, because "Everything's in packages / who needs a damned excuse? / We don't like things loose / Eveyone's in packages... / The Christians and the Jew / Eveyone's in packages / My girlgriend's in there, too...". Also "Buy guns, buy food, buy gold" is another good one which takes under a different point of view a post nuclear situation with an upbeat rhythm and cool melodies. P.s. Another similarity I found is about Flynn Picardal vocals as it remembered me Daniel Ash of Bauhaus, Tones On Tail and Love and Rockets fame.
