Theo & the Skyscrapers are an experimental electronic band from New York City consisting of Theo Kogan (formerly of the band Lunachicks, and also a model and actress),[1][2][3] Sean Pierce (of Toilet Böys), Chris Kling and Dimitry Makhnosky. Their sound has also been described as "a cross breed of new wave and metal".[4] and a "gloriously trashy technicolor electro-clash disco cabaret, with quirky art-punk and metallic overtones."[5]

In the fall of 2003, Theo and her husband, Sean, met Chris and Dimitry and Theo & the Skyscrapers was formed.[6] The band released Theo and the Skyscrapers in 2006 and So Many Ways to Die in 2007 on their record label, Dark Daddy Records.[7]

The band are involved in a video installation/rock performance called Screen Test by Rob Roth, who also did several of their music videos.[8][9]
