Sparks - La Dolce Vita b/w My Other Voice (1981) - single

Sparks is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting. Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's falsetto voice and Ron Mael's keyboard style. Their album “No.1 In Heaven” had a dramatically different sound to that of Sparks' previous seven albums. Sparks teamed up with pioneering Italian producer Giorgio Moroder. The group dropped the standard guitar, bass and piano from its musical palette. The new sound was dominated by layers sequencers and synthesizers which built upon the drums and percussion of Keith Forsey.
