Ultravox (formerly Ultravox!) have been one of the primary exponents of the British electropop music movement since the late 70s. The band is particularly associated with the new romantic scene, although it both pre- and post-dated the peak of that movement by several years. Known for popular hits such as "Dancing With Tears in My Eyes" and "Slow Motion" among many others, the band has drawn inspiration variously from dark, moody post-punk, the artier side of glam rock, and latterly straightforward synthpop. Their latest album is 2012's 'Brilliant', featuring the 80s line-up of Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross, and Warren Cann.
