Massive. That’s the best word to describe the new single from London based French ElectroPop duo The Penelopes. Time To Shine has been released as a free download and is their first original release since their 2012 album Never Live Another Yesterday. In many ways it marks a district departure from the summery (and quite ‘of the time’) Indie-ElectroPop of their previous work as they morph into something more mature and rich.
The contrast here of the growling and moody sonic pallet and the euphoric, upbeat nature of the track is what really lets this track shine. Like The Sisters Of Mercy gone shiny ElectroPop, Time To Shine is brooding 80s power Rock preformed on shimmering synthesizers, with all the requisite pomp and circumstance. Chugging bass, gritty synths and Axel’s croon backed up with some huge, Morrison-esque female vox and squealing leads, this is stadium SynthPop at it’s finest.
The Penelopes’ Time To Shine is out now. The reMix package is out soon and will feature work from Ronika and Is Tropical.
