One of our favorite synthpop bands these days may be one that’s not getting enough attention. Mint Julep is a project featuring husband and wife duo Keith and Hollie Kenniff. They continue to put out amazing synthpop albums and singles that will appeal to fans of bands like Chromatics.
The husband/wife Kennniff duo, otherwise known as Mint Julep, have release a cover of Talk Talk’s It’s My Life to pay homage to the late Mark Hollis, who passed away earlier this week due to illness. The cover is a beautifully arranged synth down tempo version that stays true to the sound of the original song, while offering enough differences to endear it to listeners.
This is Volume 3 of one of my favorite genre’s of music – music inspired by the sounds of the Drive Soundtrack. This mix features new releases that I feel would have fit perfectly on the soundtrack.
