Carmen & Camille’s new album NEON captures the passion, heartbreak and elation of the pop duo's desire to make their musical dreams comes true in the rough and tumble, star studded town of Los Angeles. Just after the girls embraced their American roots and moved to the US, in a surprise twist, they found success in their native country Canada as their single Shine 4U shot up the Canadian charts and garnered them a Juno nomination (Canada's version of a Grammy).
C&C's success in Canada only fueled their desire to make it in the USA. While remixes of Shine 4U were popping up all over the globe and industry accolades poured in, the girls started writing new songs. The twin sister duo have been practicing since childhood, experimenting with what they call “passion pop” – their trademark honesty set to catchy, dance floor hooks – and 2010 was spent travelling back and forth from Canada to make appearances in media such as Flare, E!Talk and Much Music, the Much Music Video Awards and the Juno Awards all to support the success of Shine 4U which broke into the Top 40 Canadian radio charts and landed the girls in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart.
Carmen & Camille‘s rising success didn’t happen overnight, as the girls had already developed a devoted fan base through licensing with several MTV shows including The Hills which reached a worldwide audience. They were already being talked about in Billboard, Elle Girl, Stuff Mag, Seventeen and performed on The Maury Show and on one of the last episodes of MTV's Total Request Live. C&C may now be rising princesses of pop, but the girls’ toughed it out touring relying on their musicianship, charm and dedication which led to live performances around Europe, the US and Canada -- on gritty military tours in remote areas of the Middle East to bawdy Glaswegian pubs.
Fast forward to now, these hard working twin sisters have never left each other's side harmonizing melodies and dreams in their new album NEON. Carmen & Camille's latest single "IDGAF," saw the video premier on Fuse, has been steadily gaining at US and Canadian radio and remixes of the single landed the track at #1 on the VIVA club charts in Europe. The EP is full of driving beats and catchy synths -- songs sung from the heart, and the gut. Tracks such as Without You, IDGAF and Neon Lights are fun and light-hearted while the twins return to their lovelorn lyricism with Savior, Haunting Me and Big Love. Carmen & Camille have laid down the roots to rise up, get your dancing kicks on and break a few hearts on the way.
