Tallahassee's Girls on Film play a highly glam blend of synths, electro and New Wave, a la La Roux, Ladyhawke or Passion Pit.

For the last five years, the duo -- known simply as Rio and Kazhmir -- has been making the club circuit and hitting some quality music festivals. And from time to time, they get to open for a few of the bands that influenced their retro-sound. Their music conjures up visions of Berlin, The Human League and Gary Numan.

"With a name like 'Girls on Film,' we used to find ourselves getting mistaken for a Duran Duran cover band," Rio said, "so we generally have avoided doing covers, even though they are a lot of fun."
