The synthesizer-wielding Welsh brothers who reside in San Diego began performing as Naïve Art, but adopted a different band name for their first album, which they christened after the old handle. On Naïve Art, Mark and Chris Reynolds display a remarkable ability to imitate mid-period Depeche Mode (minus some of the gloom), adding nothing new to this by-then-dated genre.
