Hailing from Sheffield, England, The Human League is an electronic new wave band that formed in 1977. Although The Human League is best known for its synthpop stylings, the band's frontman, Philip Oakley, had originally envisioned the band as an avant-garde group based heavily on the use of synthesizers. The band's transition to pop proved to be a good decision in terms of commercially popularizing The Human League and caused the group to become an influence for many electro/synth-pop bands to come.
