Eddie & Sunshine - Lines (1982)

Perfect Strangers (1983)

Following Gloria Mundi's dissolution, Maelov and Patterson took the home electronics route. They began releasing synthpop singles in 1981 as simply Eddie & Sunshine. The title track on the "Lines" 7," arguably their best tune, is partially sung in French and draws comparisons to the Belgian cold wave of the era. I do not have the b-side to this release, but you can listen here.
Perfect Strangers was the duo's sole LP. By this time the pair's sound became progressively overtaken with a cabaret aesthetic. As a result, some of material sounds dated and corny.
