RICH LIST are fastidious about aesthetic representation and attention to detail: "A lot our favourite music is from that '80s era where people like Peter Saville and New Order, Pet Shop Boys, OMD; their artwork was always banging." The band place themselves "with Chvrches, NZCA Lines, that kind of slightly '80s without being, I would hope, derivative '80s; retrospective synth led music."

The band combines the texture of shoegaze and fuzzy effects with the straight up power of yell-along alt-rock, up to the power of new-wave. It's all packaged seamlessly, not sounding like any other band making music. What The Microdance does is totally spellbinding."
