LA indie label Megahit Records proudly presents the indie pop duo Peppermint Heaven. Peppermint Heaven aka Juno (Vocals, Keyboards) and Spark (Vocals, Bass, Drums) landed in the Top 10 on Music Week’s Dance Chart two years ago with The Delicious EP. They followed last year with another Top 10 UK dance single– the irresistible Plenty Of Time with remixes by Moto Blanco and Full Intention. Building on these earlier efforts, the band returned to the studio impassioned by the positive response.
With echoes of David Bowie, Morrissey, Erasure and Pet Shop Boys, but also boasting a distinctive Peppermint Heaven edge, the duo return with their ambitious debut album Precious Things. Hypnotic album opener Stranger Than Fiction is a clear demonstration of how the boys have raised their game. An intriguing dancefloor filler which sees Duran Duran meeting New Order, Juno and Spark show that they are plenty capable of reaching the arena highs of their musical idols.
Journeying through Erasure driven explosion of the uber-cool Decide 4 Yourself to the social comment of tantric The Cage That We Live In through to the uplifting breeze of The Girl I Used To Know and the irrepressible earworm Foreign Feeling (think Heaven 17), Precious Things is an ambitious debut that delivers what the duo have always promised – a big nostalgic 80s driven, contemporary pop record.
To accompany Precious Things, Peppermint Heaven have teamed up with video director Pierce G. Wilson and Taiwanese illustrator Jeremy Zheng to create a series of videos that explore the narrative of the album. An exploration of teenage freedom, the videos are as striking and compelling as the album.
