Figurine is an
indietronicaband based in the USA. The band members, friends since high school, are somewhat secretive about their identities, using the pseudonyms David Figurine, James Figurine (Jimmy Tamborello) and Meredith Figurineand not releasing any band photos.
While the band seems to be inactive
as of 2006, all three members are also involved in other bands or have released solo work under their respective Figurine monikers. Mainly a long distance collaboration, the band was a precursor to James Figurine/Tamborello's later, more commercially successful project The Postal Service. Tamborello has also used the Figurine pseudonym for an official remixof Bright Eyes' " Easy/Lucky/Free" in 2005 and a solo album in 2006. Meredith is also a vocalist for Boothby.
Figurine lyrics commonly tell whimsical love stories involving technology, such as
space stations, instant messagingor internet cafes. Their song "New Mate" was featured on the soundtrack of the 2004 cult film" Napoleon Dynamite".
