ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
THE ECLECTiC SOUND OF DASHBOARD MADONNA
AND THEiR NEW E.P. NEON LiFE
MAY 9, 2012 - When famed lyricist BERNIE TAUPIN wrote the line “And the repo was hauling the wreck we’d been driving/As the dashboard Madonna/Smiled back at us kindly” for ELTON JOHN’s album cut “THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES” in 2001, he could scarcely imagine that the imagery would inspire the kind of funk, groove, melodic songwriting and indie artist ambition that British born guitarist/producer SASCHA CARL and Hungarian vocalist HONEY RHYDER—collectively known as DASHBOARD MADONNA--bring to their multi-faceted new collection NEON LIFE. In an age where an artist’s work is generally consumed one track at a time, the Hamburg, Germany based duo takes the extraordinary (and artistically necessary) step of releasing NEON LIFE as an 18 track double CD for physical distribution and a 12-track set for digital. DASHBOARD MADONNA has also compiled six of their favorite tunes for an advance promotional CD. In addition to 16 infectious original tunes driven by strong drum tracks, bubbling basslines (some inspired by old bass tracks recorded by SASCHA’s friend BERNHARD KLEEBERG) and clever observational storytelling, Sascha and Rhyder include spirited covers of familiar songs by MOTORHEAD (a fiery, rock/soul twist on “DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES” and CHRISTOPHER CROSS (a grooving, atmospheric romp through “RIDE LIKE THE WIND”). They created a YouTube video for “RIDE LIKE THE WIND” featuring animation inspired by imagery of the Old West.
