This is the song 'Faith And Devotion' by the swedish band 'Spökpojken'. With this 'Depeche Mode' reference the expectations rise up to the sky, before listening to a single note. I personally think that a few used sounds are a bit too generic, but overall it's a well produced synth pop track that is definitely worth listening.
The B‑side "We're Gonna Dance" is also absolutely worth listening to and has a bit more punch. Here, the use of the guitar makes the sound resemble 'New Order' a bit more. As you can see, there are big names as a comparison here! So listen to it in any case. I am curious what we will hear from 'Spökpojken' in the future and how the sound will develop.
BTW: I find the idea of the "Gorillaz character design" in Goth style quite funny, but there is definitely room for improvement in the artwork.
