Synthpop maestros, Northern Kind have returned and are letting their fans know what they have been up to. They are previewing two new tracks, Euphonic and Dreams that will appear on a yet-to-be-untitled third album, scheduled to be released sometime this year. This is a band definitely worth checking out.
There is so much testosterone and sexual energy in this song, I could get an std simply by watching it. Spectacular horrific special effects loaded to the nills with sexual innuendo make this video an instant classic! Apparently, some of the aliens are big on breast plates. Perhaps, Rupaul should take note and do a special Drag Race: Alien Edition season. This years Sex On Wheelz.
Bop2pop favorite, Mirrors (who I raved about here), are offering a free download of count them, 5 tracks, including the excellent Richard X remix of Into The Heart, simply by becoming a fan of their Facebook page. Fans and converts to be, rejoice, because if you haven’t heard of these guys, this is the perfect introduction to one of the best new synth pop bands around. And let’s face it, I am sure it hurts another “nameless” band to know, Mirrors are the real deal.
Into The Heart (Richard X Mix)
Ok, I am a little late to discover this little ditty that came out a couple months ago, but I am hooked. Not at all synthpop, and rather totally building on the wave of 60’s revival that started with Amy Whinehouse and was fully realized by Adele, Runaway Love by newcomer, Alice Gold adds a french twist, reminiscent of Claudine Longet, who bop2pop just adores. Enjoy

When we at bop2pop, first wrote about Queen of Hearts here (and again here and here), we didn’t think our first taste of a full-length video would come instead from her collaboration with Johan Agebjorn, the genious behind bop2pop favorite, Sally Shapiro (who we wrote about here), We, of course, can’t complain because this is a wonderful introduction with a video so amazingly lush and beautiful to watch. The Last Day Of Summer is the second single, but first video by Johan Agebjorn, and appears on his debut album, Casablanca Nights. If you love Sally Shapiro, you will love this.
