The enigmatic duo made up of Jeff Shapiro and Angelique Lihou, aka ‘Playing Mars’ are hitting the high notes with new track ‘Burning Desire’.
The newly formed two-piece are set to release the stunningly eerie brand new track ‘Burning Desire’.
The London-based twosome pride themselves on capturing stimulation from vibes caught out of spontaneity. ‘Burning Desire’ is the product of a jamming session on Angelique’s birthday at 4am in Clapton. Upon investment of their creative expertise, the track oozes drama with a conspiratorial feel, with Jeff’s hypnotic bass line and Angelique’s hauntingly melodious vocals.
‘Burning Desire’, showcases the pair’s musical talents and is an artistic demonstration of their unique creative chemistry. The pair are open to and influenced by every day moments that otherwise pass us by; making their music a captivating expression of what we all often think and feel. The pair are very much genuine music makers, taking inspiration from their surroundings, they even used the sound of Angelique’s spike scraping the floor in ‘Burning Desire’.
Playing Mars are not only a passionate musical duo, they are keen to experiment and express their joint creative talents through art, having worked closely with artists and film makers, Omri Taub, Joanna Imrie and Olga Gomez, to mention just a few. Films and short documentaries will feature on their website to give listeners a unique insight into their lives and personalities, “It’s all about life, politics, music, religion, love, lust and passion and everything that we breathe and live” says Angelique.
The quirky sounds of the duo show some resemblance to that of Goldfrapp, Sigor Ros, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd. The song has been remixed by Dan Goodie and Matt Schwarz, offering an energetic new take on the track.
