Peppermint Heaven finds Juno and Spark continue to expand their extraordinary Electro Pop music. Certainly, satisfaction of one’s curiosity is the greatest source of happiness. That said, I always wonder if there are modern artists that can imitate the colorful 80s melodies we all yearn. Fortunately, ‘Curious Things’ is an album which fulfills my need for good music. Showcasing an evident influence from that groundbreaking era, it does not cease to sound contemporary. In general terms, guitar patterns, electronic beats, and synths enrich the overall listening experience. However, equally important are the distinctive vocals expressing lyrics that seem to be telling stories. Below you can read my in-depth review of the 11 tracks.

1 – Sun Goes Down The album’s opening track shimmers with lively drums. The unstoppable beats from the drumkit along with the repetitive chorus represent an energy boost.
2 – Time Goes By I like how the expressing vocals remain vigorous. Clearly, you can hear emotions that surround suffering about the time factor. A good interpretation.
3 – You Definitely, this lyric line has been impregnated in my mind: “It’s trueee… So trueee… It’s youuu… Just youuu…” Well, I don’t know why it is very catchy, but so far, their secret formula works at its best. Watch the exclusive premiere of the music video down here!
4 – Monday Morning Currently, this is the new single from the LA-based duo. I love Mondays because I like starting new things. While it is true the weekend is over and you have to face another week of long commutes, perhaps, this track could brighten your day. Sonically, it features a sexy style of guitar playing + beautiful synths. It’s one of my favorites from the ‘Curious Things’ album. Preview right here the upcoming music video:
5 – I See Things so Clearly Now The retro vibe is still on-going with the fifth track. I would describe it as an upbeat offering that will get your feet stomping and heart pumping.
6 – More Like Me It immediately grabs your attention as soon as the first beat drops. The rockish attitude the lead singer portrays through his vocals match perfectly with the beeps that recall sound effects from the 80s.
7 – Hard World Similar to “Monday Morning”, these guys deliver once again a realistic message. A soft melody serves as the music background for this song that talks about the World isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. It’s a pretty cool ballad.
8 – Don’t Give Up So Easy First of all, I like how the dynamic vocals complement each other on this track. It’s a love song which makes us reflect upon the partner we rely on and if it is worth continuing a relationship. They perform the lyrics with pure emotion!
9 – Make A Fool I can’t believe Peppermint Heaven had such killer tunes on this new album. Well, here’s another good example of something quite catchy. There’s nothing boring about it.
10 – Know Your Rights What particularly impresses me is the implementation of something similar to an 8-bit/arcade game theme on the song. The rest elements sound a bit repetitive.
11 – Sing Out The Sorrow I enjoy the “la-la-la-la” part of this song and almost all the radio-friendly tracks featured on this album. After all, the sound quality is excellent and the lyrical content imaginative. You might want to stream this album not only to have a fun time with your friends but also to sing along.

Gay Music Artist Rocki Mara Drops Halloween-Themed Music Video
Following the release of “Your Body Is Amazing,” gay music artist Rocki Mara shows no signs of stopping and drops Halloween-themed visuals for his second single, “Step Aside”.
Following the release of “Your Body Is Amazing,“ gay music artist Rocki Mara shows no signs of stopping and drops Halloween-themed visuals for his second single, “Step Aside”. In the new clip, he shows off his expressive, fun, and magnetic personality. Plus, he does a great job, as his singing voice matches the bouncy retro synths so well. Beyond catchy beats, this cut is heightened by his simple but powerful songwriting. Curiously, his birthday inspired him to write this song that leaves a significant message to reinforce self-esteem.
With confidence and feeling empowered, Rocki makes it clear that it is wise to step aside from judgemental people. As a matter of fact, those who are constantly criticizing others, enjoy having their false sense of moral superiority. Therefore, it’s better to ignore them and keep moving on. Taking this into account, “Step Aside” means to love yourself no matter what. This is one to play on repeat for the rest of the year.

Gated Reverb Made An 80s Remix Of “Around The World” By Eivind Husebø
Eivind Husebø‘s “Around The World” gets a striking 80s remix. Norwegian Producer Plextro aka Gated Reverb offers a unique spin to the original rockish song that is for sure a crowd-pleaser. One way or another, this new version is taking you on a trip to a retrofuturistic atmosphere. Undoubtedly, it’s 100% fun, infectious, and different.
I think the outcome turned out splendidly due to its Synthwave/Electro-Pop elements. The driving synths are an explosion of ecstasy and pleasure to the ears. Here, Eivind is demonstrating how versatile can sound his tracks with such a high-profile collaboration. What’s more, vocals remain untouched as they flow over booming drums daring you to dance. Besides that, its positive message that awakens in you the desire to win the world also prevails. Taking everything into account, it will be only a matter of time until you see him at the top of the game.

Experience Now This Feel-Good Jam Called “Downbeat” By Trynket
Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature.
Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature. This jam sounds way different from her emotive ballad “Picture (In My Brain)”, which became her debut single and reached over 40K streams on Spotify in 2019.
Conversely, with “Downbeat” she invites you to dance without shame and move your hips like nobody’s watching. Inspired by Synthpop hits from the 80s, plus, unforgettable R&B cuts from the 90s, I think she’s artistically in the right direction. As a result, this particular blend of genres represents a breath of fresh air that is much needed in today’s saturated music industry.
Believe it or not, for the past two years Trynket has been recording upbeats tracks in Los Angeles. Since early childhood, she proved to be a natural talent. Not to mention, she composed her own songs at the age of five after starting piano lessons. Nowadays, she is blessed with a beautiful voice that fits well in any style. I can guarantee the music video for “Downbeat” is as good as the track itself. If you would like to transport yourself to a much warmer place, then I recommend you to watch it. There’s also a super fun choreography in this clip that could go viral on TikTok. Don’t miss it.
