SCREAMS FROM THE SUN

FRESH: ‘Keep On Running’ – Screams From The Sun

Screams From The Sun, “Keep On Running”

London based duo Screams From The Sun (Francis Jupiter and Mimí Out) release their new single “Keep On Running”, today, a superb synthwave-retrowave track full of 80’s flavour with awesome synth guitars and rock vocals over a crescendo of instrumentation to blow your mind back to 1984! “Keep On Running” is the duos second official release of 2020 and follows their earlier release, “Down Down”, which has since been followed with an acoustic version.

“Keep On Running” was recorded and mixed at the boys homes from two different countries during lockdown and mastered at The Fucina Studio in Italy. All the extra voices at the end of the track are from several fans from around the world who sent recordings to then using their phones! Screams From The Sun tell us that: “We wanted to create an uplifting track with positive vibes to express this concept of finding ourselves. Being always into the synthpop sound and 80s vibes came naturally to us to give the extra bit of fun to the track”.

They add: “Life is like a run and the only way to discover more and more about ourselves is to never stop. We’re in a constant evolution andwe’ll never stop learning. Why not having fun in doing it?”. Francis and Mimi made their debut in 2017 with “The Battle” and have continued to release the occasional new tune ever since. Beginning as buskers on the streets of London as a full time job, they now focus their efforts on writing and recording that has lead to performances for Rolling Stone, France and even with American actor and musician, Jared Leto!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
