Music by Bergman: Desire

Desire’s self-titled debut is a smouldering ache — saturnine synthesized pop about heartbreak & infinite longing, late nights by the telephone & break-up letters smeared by tears.

Johnny Jewel discovered singer Megan Louise performing at a club in Montreal. So transfixed was he by her voice that he elected to mirror his Portland Suite 304 studio and create a second recording room in Quebec. With the addition of Jewel’s longtime collaborator Nat Walker (Chromatics, Symmetry) on drums & synthesizer, the part-American, part-French Canadian band was born. 
Desire is melancholic pop grandeur — the soundtrack to new love that feels like the end of the world. Desire, just one of the many italo-leaning dream pop acts featured on Johnny Jewel’s Italians Do It Better label, have shared ‘Tears From Heaven’, their first new single in nine years.

Les versions d’il Dottore: Chromatics “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”

Il Dottore ens regala una altra versió molt actual. Una de les nostres bandes preferides s’ha atrevit a versionar la famosa cançó de Cindy Lauper “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. Chromatics que estan a punt de treure nous disc, l’esperadíssim “Dear Tommy” van versionar aquesta cançó per un anunci de la marca Mango protagonitzat per les models Kate Moss i Carla Delevigne. La banda de Johnny Jewell  embolcalla la cançó en un halo d’hipnòtic dream-pop.
