"We wanted to do a tribute to the past, as well as give a strong message to the present and future about what we could all do to help the world"

The enigmatic duo have swerved their classic synth-pop sound

By Frank Bell

L.A. Based duo Peppermint Heaven (Juno and Spark) have become a byword for retro, lush synth-pop in the modern era. However, on their new EP, the dup have took a turn in a new direction for their sound and the ‘Rocktropolis’ EP is an example of that new-found creativity. Filled with hands-in-the-air moments and a strong pastiche of rock from the 70s and 80s. 

Spark explains: “In the making of Rocktropolis, we wanted to do a tribute to the past, as well as give a strong message to the present and future about what we could all do to help the world. ​​Juno’s lead singing in this EP is strong and can lead into the future to inspire all!” – Spark

Produced by  Peppermint Heaven and mixed by multi-platinum mixer/producer Brian Reeves (Selena Gomez, SimpleMinds, Giorgia Moroder, Pet Shop Boys & more) – the track forebodes a change in sound for the producer duo, drawing on emphatic, lead guitar riffs and upbeat production.
