Under Supervision: the you know who…

Self-described as a duo of 80s-loving gear-geeks, the you know who… recall 80s hits with the perfect flair of today’s pop.  The product of Chau Phan and Matt Engst, the sound is something that Europeans embrace and stuck up Americans eventually give into.  Either way, the you know who… has listeners dancing.   For this reason among others, the flashy duo was easily selected as a band to watch in Sweden.
