Juno and Spark, the artists behind the critically acclaimed indie-dance duo, have never hidden their passion for British sounds. Although now based in Los Angeles, they met in Chicago and quickly bonded over their love for Great British acts including Tears For Fears, Pet Shop Boys, Simple Minds, New Order, Howard Jones, Psychedelic Furs.
While they didn’t realise it at the time, this chance meeting would lead to a recording career that has not only seen them likened to some of their key infleunces, but hailed by tastemakers as one of the most authentic contemporary takes on the definitive 80s sound. Although this would be more than enough praise for any band, Peppermint Heaven were pin-pointed by Clash for being at the very forefront of the marriage between US and UK underground scenes.
Having clocked up over a million streams on Spotify, the band have crossed over from cult success into more universal audience without ever compromising their distinctive and addictive sound. Their unique brand of 80’s style indie pop has a rare authenticity that sees their appeal stretch across the generations.
As they build to the release of their upcoming EP, New Moons, the duo reveal the new single to follow in the wake of the euphoric Real Religions. When I Look In Your Eyes boasts all the distinctive elements of Peppermint Heaven’s sound, but is packaged in their most radio friendly, sing along anthem form to date.
