Form a band, make music, tour the world – that’s every teenager’s dream. It’s also the reality that Piper and Skylar Kaplan now live as the adorable dream-pop outfit Puro Instinct, an oufit would can count Ariel Pink as one of their many fans no less.
Their contribution to our MIX SERIES, TRUEEMERALD, is exactly what you’d expect from the girls: a mix of obscure 80s electronica and lush pop music. You probably won’t have heard of many of the tracks or artists, but each one has a warm and familiar quality that mirrors the duo’s work. The highlight of the mix has to be Yukihiro Takahashi’s Disposable Love, where the former Yellow Magic Orchestra singer creates an immaculate pop song that sets the tone for the rest of the mix.
'Headbangers In Ecstacy' by Puro Instinct's is released via Record Makers in UK on Sept. 12th and on Oct. 5th in the rest of Europe.
