Indie Spotlight: Pr0files

Posted in News on April 21, 2015

Unabashedly sexy in their approach to making electronica, the duo made up of longtime friends Lauren Pardini (vocals/keys) and Danny Sternbaum (producer/guitars) like to say they “write songs about sex addiction, hypnotherapy and love.” And while that is true, they also make music that’s dancefloor-ready, as evidenced by their latest single “Get It Up,” which comes adorned with a perfect R&B/Pop hook. Their collaboration dates back to 2008 and was intermittent for the next five years while Lauren cut her teeth writing and playing keyboards in DJ Khalil’s camp working with such artists as Corin from Purity Ring and A$AP Rocky. At the same time Danny honed his sound by touring with his band Baby Monster (supporting Klaxons, Miike Snow and Metric, to name a few), and remixing tracks for the likes of Ellie Goulding and Gorillaz. In the summer of 2013, Lauren and Danny reunited in the studio and what came out was “Call Yourself a Lover,” a break-up anthem that starts slow and builds to a splendid dreamscape of ‘80s-era synths. It was the perfect launching pad for Pr0files, which now releases music via its own label, Straight A Records.
