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.
