Pet Shop Boys, are an English electronic dance music duo, consisting of Neil Tennant, who provides main vocals, keyboards and occasionally guitar and Chris Lowe... boards and occasionally on vocals.
As electro-pop dance club mainstays, the Pet Shop Boys have ruled the disco lighted, beat heavy dance floors for well over 20 years producing perpetual hits here and in Europe. The longevity of the Pet Shop Boys has to be attributed to their ability to create dance music -- what Neil Tennant still lovingly refers to as disco -- with intelligent lyrics, Brit wit and a striking style that begs to be, but rarely is, copied even though artists from all shades of the musical spectrum quote PSB as an influence.
"On July 15th, Pet Shop Boys return in triumphant form with their new studio album 'Electric,' the first to appear on their own label x2 (via Kobalt Label Services). 'Electric' features nine tracks in total - eight brand new Pet Shop Boys' songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'The last to die.' The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made. Pet Shop Boys said: "'Electric' is very much set on the dance floor. Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas 'Elysium' had a reflective mood, 'Electric' is pretty banging! And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time."
