Canal Pop is the name chosen by the electropop producer (and label owner) Emiliano Canal, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to release his material. Canal Pop’s music can be described as “catchy pop songs with intelligent lyrics”, and this is because Emiliano has a remarkable ear for catchy choruses and hit melodies, the kind of music that sticks to your head after hearing it on the radio
Eternal Sunday presents Canal Pop‘s new single, a cover of the Pet Shop Boys classic “How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously?”. The track was featured in 2016 in the compilation Prism, a tribute to Pet Shop Boys released by the German music portal Electrozombies (containing songs performed by some of the best artists in the electropop/ synthpop/ synthwave international underground scene like Parralox, Junksista, Machinista, Technique, etc.).
How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously? is Canal Pop’s first collaboration with singer Arabescos. The single features the single version that appeared in the compilation and a killer remix by German Kreff.
Eternal Sunday releases a new version of the 1983 Mike Oldfield hit “Moonlight Shadow” by Canal Pop feat. Polette. The song has already been released in 2012 as the b-side of the single “Electricity”, but the artist was not happy with that version. “The version released in 2012 was not finished, we were working on it and a hard disk crashed so I had to use the only mix I had”, says Emiliano Canal, AKA Canal Pop. “Luckily enough, we were able to recover the original files and make a new version, the way I originally wanted it so sound”. As usual, the song features the whole Canal Pop production package: carefully produced amazing female vocals and a synth-lead infectious rhythm that makes people want to dance.

Eternal Sunday presents Come To My World, the first single taken from the upcoming Canal Pop album, featuring singer, actress and model Josefina Aufranc. The album will be an homage to the early electro disco music that started with Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, produced by Giorgio Moroder in 1977.
The single contains the title track and a killer remix by Fr3ak. Both of them are instantly recognizable as Canal Pop songs, respecting the formula of releasing very catchy electropop songs with carefully produced vocal arrangements. Josefina Aufranc provides crystal- clear powerful vocals.
“I want Canal Pop to sound like a mix of Daft Punk and Abba”, said Emiliano Canal, the man behind Canal Pop. “I want a modern sound, but I also love the early electro sound, the old Hi-NRG and Italo disco sound. These were fantastic styles of music, much more original that rock. That’s why we covered ‘I Feel Love’, Giorgio Moroder started a revolution and music was changed forever. But no one took this electronic music seriously when it started”.
