J-14 is scouting out the hottest music around... and this week's pick is Carmen & Camille.
Here are four things you need to know about Carmen & Camille whose new EP Neon is out soon!
Twin sisters Carmen & Camille have been involved with music their whole lives. "We have always sang in choir and I started playing the flute in elementary school and Camille started on guitar in high school," Carmen tells J-14. "But it wasn't until after high school and college that we started pursuing it full time. We've always had a passion for music. We have a tape recording of the first song we wrote when we were four years old about our Grandma's cat."
The electro-pop duo have a list of artists they'd love to work with including Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and Carly Rae Jepsen. "We know her from Vancouver and are so happy for all of her success. We could do a song about Vancouver girls taking over the world!" Carmen says.
Their EP Neon is due out early this year. "Neon was written over the past couple years, the majority of it in LA. It is a snapshot of our lives, songs like 'Big Love' and 'Haunting Me' were written about specific relationships," Carmen tells J-14. "The blessing and the curse of having two people writing and performing the songs is making it personal for both of us. But these songs are definitely personal and bring us back to the amazing, crazy, and sometimes bittersweet moments of the past couple of years."
Their favorite track of their EP is a song called "Away". "It changes often. I like 'Away' because it's kind of quirky like us," Carmen says. "I was just going to say the exact same thing. Twin moment," Camille adds.
