Die Roten Punkte perform "Ich Bin Nicht Ein Roboter (I Am a Lion)" with Amanda Palmer at The Roxy, Los Angeles, July 18, 2012.

Die Roten Punkte (German for "The Red Dots") is a pop-music comedy duo composed of Australians Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias, in the tradition of Spinal Tap and Flight of The Conchords.[1][2] Like The White Stripes, the band members (Australians Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias)[3] claim to be a brother and sister, named Otto Rot and Astrid Rot, and they banter and sing in German accents of questionable authenticity.[4][5]

The band has released four studio albums.
