The Peppermint Lounge

"Samples, electronic drum kit, trumpets and turntables; their sound is a lush concoction across genres. Hip-hop type beats supplement gloomy electronic rumblings and stabs of melody are prepared over the top, creating a busy yet subtle environment... It's good to see a band thinking about inventiveness, The Peppermint Lounge are ones to delve further into." -Tom Keighley (Leeds Music Scene) 6/11/09
