BRAND NEW: The Penelopes – Time To Shine
I fell head-over-heels in love The Penelopes (Axel Basquiat and Vincent T.) when they pulled off that gorgeous redo of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven”. And what I’ve found since perusing their SoundCloud is a super fun collection of passionate indie-dance jams that I think have mass appeal. Their new one came in the mail today. It’s called “Time To Shine”.
The track was written by Axel in a hotel room in Tokyo last winter using a bass, a cheap keyboard and a drum machine. When brought into the studio the song was spiced up with some French-electronic and 80s flavors, becoming an upbeat, anthemic electro track reminiscent of hedonistic, Flashdance-era Moroder.
The Penelopes are currently in the studio recording new material and working on new remixes, with more news on this coming soon. Follow them on Facebook for updates.
