French indie electronic duo <strong>The Penelope[s]</strong> mixes a distinctly pop sensibility, drawing on synth-pop and techno with that perfect dash of early 90’s indie rock. “<em>Stuck In Lalaland (feat. Morpheus)</em>” is a perfect example of the band’s wide ranging appeal, from home listeners to club kids. While rock in structure, “<em>Stuck in Lalaland</em>” shines a light on the disco ball, dances with hi-hat profusion and slapped basses, recalling a more soulful <strong>MGMT</strong> or cheekier <strong>LCD Soundsystem</strong>. The dance appeal of the track is perfectly captured by Japanese remix wizard <strong>80 Kidz</strong>, who build on the dance hit production and turns this song into a frenzied techno club anthem.
The real star attraction here, however, is the <strong>Nouvelle Vague</strong> Remix. The bossa treatment reinvents the song’s timeless, irreverent feel, and features vocals supplied by <strong>Elli Medeiros</strong>. Now legendary for her turn in 70′s punk band <strong>Stinky Toys</strong> (opening for the <strong>Sex Pistols</strong> & <strong>The Clash</strong> at the infamous 100 Club gig), <strong>Medeiros</strong> went on to record one of the biggest French hits of the 80′s before turning her attention to acting, most notably with <strong>Olivier Assayas</strong> and <strong>Eric Rohmer</strong>. “<em>Stuck in lalaland</em>” marks a rare return to singing for one of France’s most charismatic personalities.
