One of my tips is the swedish band Covenant.

A little bit of this longing in the voice, god songs and some nice sounds.

More modern sounds than the old Ultravox records, but without turning into modern dance music.

I've always pointed to Marillion on this forum whenever threads like this pop up. I feel Afraid of Sunlight is one of the best songs Ultravox never wrote- take a listen:

If stuff on the new Vox album sounds anything like this then it will be something worth listening to...

I loved the Fish Marillion but have to admit I haven't paid much attention to them after he left. Then again I haven't paid any attention to Fish's solo stuff either!!

Covenant are playing in London on September 10th, and RBN UK are supporting - well worth checking out if you like synth based music.

I must say that personally I do not understand at all how Marillion can be mentioned in a "if you like Ultravox" conversation - 2 totally different bands from totally different genres.

To be honest, I hope the new album is just sounding like ... ULTRAVOX - and not any of the bands mentioned here.

I'm a bit reluctant to admit this but I seem to have developed some kind of 'addiction' to Hurts debut album 'Happiness'. Been listening to not much else for a few months now. Think it's fantastic though! Having said all of that I haven't been out for ages!!? Something I probably need to do more.......

The Frozen Autumn. A dark wave band from Italy or Spain I believe. Check out this fantastic video someone has done for their track "The Echo Of My Lies" using footage from the original Dracula movie.
