this is a band from 1981, Heads in the sky. I don' t know much more, but i think it could fit in electronic progressive category.

Once heard a 79' EP by this group, which was completely passionless Synth-Pop with one track a bit close to Twelfth Night.This one sounds more balanced and proggy with a bit of everything in the mix, I think Xover is more of an appropriate choice.Anyway, let's see what the other guys have to say about it.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power,the world will know peace...
