Brother-and-sister duo Blondfire have been making music together since they were children. Now they've signed to Warner Bros. for their major label debut, Young Heart. It will feature "Waves," an acoustic track that highlights the pair's knack for dreamy melodies and electronic rhythms.

"This is our attempt at a dark disco sound," member Bruce Driscoll tells Rolling Stone. "The song talks about the ebb and flow of life and how all things good and bad come in waves."

Young Heart was recorded in a week at Bruce's home studio and Hollywood's Wax Studios. It was self-produced by him and sister Erica Driscoll and will be released in 2013.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
