Julian & Marina trade their signature blend of synthpop and lounge for this decidedly more upbeat and dance-oriented track, Count the Stairs (think Pet Shop Boys meets Saint Etienne). The track will be the lead single off their soon-to-be-released second collaborative EP, Distance
Julian & Marina are Julian Brandt and Marina Schiptjenko. Both are established artists in their own right (Marina of Bodies Without Organs , A/K/A, BWO fame while Julian is a solo artist who was formerly in Bobby). We featured their previous collaboration, Moon & The Stars a few months back and are excited that they are back in even better form with new single, Blockin the Line. If you are fans of synthpop of the same vein as Sally Shapiro or Lola Dutronic, we think you are going to dig this.
Swedish synthpop artist Julian Brandt has teamed up with another chanteuse, this time with BWO member, Anna Marina Schiptjenko for Moon and the Stars, a kitschy synthpop track that is scheduled to be the lead single off of Brandt’s sophomore release, News Travels Fast in Stockholm. Each of the ten tracks taken from this album will feature a guest vocalist. Julian Brandt is no stranger to duets, having worked with the likes of Paulinda Crescentini and Kitty on previous releases. We like to think of his dramatic and campy flaire as a Swedish counterpart to Marc Almond.
