Lockets has a forthcoming EP due for release via Beautiful Strange on August 15th. It will be a limited edition record of just 300 transparent orange 10-inch vinyl albums. The EP includes “Surrender”, “Girl” and two remixes of the former, one by Fear Club and the other by Luxembourg-based electronic artist Sun Glitters, who has also worked with Steffaloo. Dani Mari and Todd Mendelsohn’s latest work is a real throwback to the pretty, romantic, ideal synth-pop songs of the 80s. “Surrender” is imbued with that old radio-tune glow, musically and lyrically: “Surrender yourself / You’re under arrest / Keep pacing back and forth / I’m waiting for you / Left a note on your pillow / With a photo of me and you / Dancing in your shadow / Set you free / Just come with me.” It’s easy to fall into its sway. You can follow Lockets at facebook and twitter. Stream the songs at the artist’s bandcamp page. Note: All lyrics are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.
