True Loves

Hooray for Earth: "True Loves"
I'd be inclined to call these guys 'the poor man's Cut Copy'...except that they can definitely hold their own without succumbing to the irritating tendencies that plague other indie-electro/synthpop bands (namely, the desire to emulate instead of innovate--Owl City, I'm looking at you).  Yes, they sound kinda like MGMT circa "Oracular Spectacular," with a dash of Depeche Mode thrown in--and I have to admit it took me two listens before I got past this--but in the end it's like following a line of influence rather than watching a crap attempt at identity-theft implode.  They can be a little over-blown at times, but over-all I like it.  But can someone please tell me what the hell is on the cover?  It is keeps looking at me, and I'm starting to get a little creeped out.
