Introducing Picture Book

Picture Book are a new production duo self-releasing their own material. The debut EP is just out now, and a remix EP is in the works. This EP is great for fans of vocal electro-pop. The song "Sunshine" makes me think of iio. "Surrender" has a chill progressive house vibe. "Terminally in Love" is a ballad. "Jealousy" is pure pop with hints of Gwen Stefani.

from the press release::
Picture Book are brothers Dario Darnell and Lorne Ashley, born in New York City and raised in Manchester, UK. Dario and Lorne have inherited a love of song writing and performing from their father August Darnell, lead singer and band leader of the legendary Kid Creole & The Coconuts.

Picture Book will release their first commercial EP 'At Last' in January 2012. The four track EP was co-written and recorded with Grammy nominated vocalist Greta Svabo Bech, who featured on Deadmau5's 'Raise Your Weapon'. The EP demonstrates the breadth of songwriting skills, from the uptempo and immediate Sunshine, to the more reflective Terminally in Love.

The lead single, 'Sunshine', was produced by Picture Book, with additional production and mixing by super hot French DJ & producer 'Hugo Leclercq. Second track 'Jealousy' was co-produced and mixed with Dan Grech, who produced The Vaccines 2011 breakthrough album. The third track, Terminally In Love, and final track, Surrender, were produced and mixed by Picture Book.

'At Last' will be closely followed by a remix package in February 2012.
