->''"Studio Killers. No one knows where they came from; one day they were just here staring back at us through our high definition flat screens."''

Studio Killers is a self-described virtual electronic audio visual collective based in Denmark, the UK, and Finland. Being virtual, the band is made up entirely of fictional characters portrayed through both animated videos and stunning original artwork. There's the curvaceous vocalist Cherry, keyboardist canid Goldie Foxx, the dapper DJ Dyna Mink, and their carnivorous manager, Bipolar Bear. Unlike other virtual bands of the same vein, Studio Killers possess a unique quality: no one really knows where they came from or who's behind them.

Another thing that seems to attract is their interaction with their fans. They have official accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Sound Cloud, and even Tumblr, and speak to their adoring public on all of them. It definitely leads to some [[FanService interesting questions getting answered sometimes.]]

Despite only having one single, three music videos, one demo, and a number of interviews and sneak-previews, they've attracted one large and loyal fanbase made up of art appreciators and music enthusiasts alike. Their first (self titled) album was released on June 14th, 2013.

A successful Kickstarter campaign in June 2014 funded live shows at Ruisrock and Ilosaarirock festivals in Finland, using multiscreen animated visuals produced with the aid of Immersive Ltd. There are plans to take the live show on tour, but no dates have been announced as of December 2014.

You've probably heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbPAIexC9r8 ''Ode To The Bouncer'']] on the internet somewhere at some point.
!!Studio Killers provides examples of:
* AllMenArePerverts: Subverted with [[DoesNotLikeMen "All Men Are Pigs."]] The title (and the following line "...all men but me") is meant to be one of the many shallow pick-up lines bestowed upon Cherry, who probably thinks the guy telling her this [[{{Hypocrite}} is just another pig]].
* BigBeautifulWoman: Cherry. Although on their official Tumblr, she told a fan that she believes women of all sizes are beautiful.
* BiTheWay: Cherry.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6fBnY0bYMo Early vlogs by Cherry]] depict her as being aloof and rather grumpy; she suggests that she's only in the music business for the sake of getting into parties and making connections, and she derisively refers to to "the fox and mink" as "fucking animals"; she also, curiously, speaks with an American accent, despite the very thick English tone to her singing voice. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz2TpXmed7k Later vlogs]] and [[http://studiokillers.tumblr.com/ the Studio Killers tumblr blog]] present her as ''much'' warmer, always giving loving and encouraging statements to her fans, willing to crack jokes at her expense, and enjoying a genuine friendship with Goldie and Dyna, as well as finally having an English accent.
* ChickMagnet: Do the fans care that Goldie's a fictional anthropomorphic fox? Not really. Probably because he's just as keen to flirt back.
* DarkIsNotEvil: In her commentary of "Ode to the Bouncer" Cherry claims that the Bouncer is "not so bad once you get to know him", in spite of him being undead.
* DesignStudentsOrgasm: All of the artwork.
* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: "Jenny" has a subversion. Cherry explicit states she ''wants'' to ruin their friendship and [[BiTheWay become more than friends]].
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Sort of. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGjHsLnUO1U All the other men turn gay wherever he goes]].
* ExtremeOmnivore: Bipolar Bear has frequently mentioned eating or wanting to eat a number of worrying things. Like small dogs, seals, ''[[EatTheDog foxes]]...''
* TheFashionista: Cherry has an UnlimitedWardrobe and a video blog where she talks about fashion and her outfits of the week.
** [[http://cherry-blog.tumblr.com/ Cherry's tumblr]] has a collection of original artwork of Cherry with Outfit Of The Day captions.
* FunnyAnimal: Goldie Foxx, Dyna Mink and Bipolar Bear.
* GoingCommando: According to a couple lines in "Ode To The Bouncer," Cherry goes dancing like this.
-->"''And I'm not wearing trainers''\\
''Not to mention knickers.''"
* GratuitousSpanish: Seems to be a minor theme, with ''Jenny'' randomly using "amigo" for Jenny's boyfriends and ''Eros and Apollo'' using "señorita" to refer to the girls chasing the eponymous pair, as well as calling them 'sweet lolita'- a popular term of endearment.
* IndirectKiss: In the "Jenny" video, Cherry licks some lipstick Jenny had just used.
* IntercourseWithYou: The lyrics to "Ode to the Bouncer" seem to imply that Cherry wants to either fight the bouncer to get in or sleep with him to get in, going back and forth between seducing and outright insulting him. In the music video, she outright has sex with him in the alleyway and sneaks into the club through the bathroom window while he's not looking.
* MagicSkirt: Though this trope [[PantyShot doesn't always apply]] in the art, Cherry's skirt in "Ode to the Bouncer" outright defies physics to keep her just barely covered. Probably for the best, since she mentions in the lyrics she's [[GoingCommando not wearing knickers]].
* MaleGaze: There's a lot of close shots of Cherry's breasts, butt and legs in the "Ode to the Bouncer" video.
* MediumBlending: Cherry is always rendered in CGI, while Dyna, Goldie, and The Bouncer are all 2-D illustrations. The video for "Eros and Apollo" adds pixel art to the mix.
* MsFanservice: The way Cherry proudly struts her stuff in so many skimpy outfits makes her specifically a ShamelessFanserviceGirl.
* NeverTrustATitle: "All Men are Pigs" is deceptive because of the title and the mascot. The song appears to be about a woman singing about how all men are pigs in a fairly sexist way. However, the actually singer is male and the line "all men but me," indicates that the song is actually about a male trying to pick up a woman by using the old cliché in a hypocritical way. This, obviously, completely changes the meaning of the song.
%%* NoFourthWall
* OneWomanSong: "Jenny"
* OnlySaneWoman: Cherry seems to regard herself as this in comparison to her ''"crazy, dirty, stinky"'' animal bandmates.
* {{Retraux}}: The video for "Eros and Apollo". Even PacMan makes an appearance!
* {{Robosexual}}: "In Tokyo". ''I made out with/made love to a robot...''
* SexForServices: It's pretty obvious how Cherry attempted to get into the club in the ''Ode to the Bouncer'' video.
* SexyWalk: Cherry at the start of the "Ode to the Bouncer" video.
* ShoutOut:
** In response to a fan asking them what they thought about fellow cartoon band {{Music/Gorillaz}}, Cherry quipped that they ''"look like they know how to have a good time."''
** Cherry [[http://studiokillers.tumblr.com/post/10763532019/cherry-me-and-my-nightmare-bronie-are-all-set-to apparently]] has a Nitemare [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Bronie]].
** PacMan makes a cameo in the video for ''Eros and Apollo''
** [[Music/TheWall "All in all, you're just another prick at the door!"]]
* StageNames: Goldie Foxx and Dyna Mink's real names are nowhere near as cool as their artist names.
-->'''Dyna:''' Why do we have these names?\\
'''Goldie:''' Well, who would we be without appropriately catchy names?\\
'''Dyna:''' Probably David and Peter.
* StylisticSuck: Dyna Mink's fanart in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjX6u0cxlpw "Tea Time at the Progress Bar".]]
* WidgetSeries: Has shades of this. It's a fictional band consisting of a woman with makeup running down her face and two anthropomorphic animals. Their music videos don't make much sense either.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair:
** Cherry, obviously. Although it hardly stays the same color twice.
** Dyna Mink probably also counts, considering minks usually don't have bright blue fur.
* YourMakeupIsRunning: Cherry's signature look.
