I've been listening to a lot of New Order recently. Or rather, I've been streaming a lot of New Order videos on Youtube, which is to say that I've been listening to AND looking at New Order recently. They're a band with a strong visual identity, which I appreciate. I'm looking for other bands with strong visual identities like that.

New Order is well-known for frequently working with Peter Saville and Michael Shamberg, which allowed them to be pretty consistent throughout their career. I happen to like the visual style of both, so that's why I've been watching on Youtube, instead of just listening on Spotify. It feels like a Gesamtkunstwerk. I feel like I get more out of it than just listening to music or watching video or looking at an album cover - the sum is greater than its parts.

So I'm looking for other artists like that. Ideally, they'd probably sound similar to New Order - I like a lot of poppy, danceable "alternative" music - but it's not a requirement. And something visually similar to Peter Saville or Michael Shamberg would be good, too. But that's probably asking too much, so I won't be too picky. Feel free to suggest bands and artists that are nothing like them, as long as there's that Gesamtkunstwerk feel.

I am looking for consistency, though, which eliminates someone like Bowie from consideration. His music and the art surrounding it are indelibly linked, but Bowie famously kept reinventing his image.
