The second limited edition 12″ picture disc single from Neon Neon (Gruff Rhys & Boom Bip). Taken from their Mercury Prize nominated concept album Stainless Style about the life of John Delorean
Raquel is a precision engineered, turbo-charged slice of power-pop: an ode to US film and TV star Raquel Welch who allegedly dated John Delorean in the 1980s.
Boom Bip’s euphoric, lush and pin-sharp dancefloor-pop leads us into the heady world of fast cars, shag pile carpets and the bitter taste of martini as Gruff Rhys’ brilliantly maverick songwriting reimagines – through the eyes of DeLorean himself – the heady romance between the smitten fast-living businessman and silver screen siren.
The mp3 download includes the radio edit of Raquel, as well as the track Trick For Treat, and it’s Hot Chip remix.
