Just nominated for the Mercury Prize award Metronomy’s track ‘The Bay’ now has yet another reMix to add to it’s ranks,
Over reMixed tracks can become a chore, but luckily this time the always innovative Clock Opera do their thing, Stacking up various styles together and making it work is one of Clock Opera’s trademarks and there’s certainly a lot going on in this reMix yet the track never gets overrun. I expect this to be rocking a lot of Indie dancefloors this summer.
London based avant garde Indie-ElectroPoppers Clock Opera’s single ‘Once And For All’ was released this month on Kitsuné.
One of the reMixes included on the EP is this deep Lo-Fi mix be Clive Tanaka, a man so illusive that even the label know little about him. Still, everyone loves a mystery these days init! This shadowy figure brings an atmospheric, relaxed take on the track with minimal synth and guitar work creating a hypnotic vibe for Clock Opera’s emotive track to ride over.
We’re fans of both Clock Opera and Little Loud here at electronic rumors, so when this little gem dropped in the Inbox excitement followed.
It’s quite a killer tune too. ‘Once And For All’ will be Clock Opera’s next single for Kitsuné Music and Little Loud’s take on the track is a pulsing and shimmering synth workout. Laidback and feel good the sparking lead lines have a pretty euphoric effect.
Clock Opera are one of the more interesting act to emerge in the last six months, setting them selves apart from the pack with unusual instrumentation and intelligent songwriting.
Ed Banger artist Mickey Moonlight has had a crack at their current single bringing in some heavy tribal drums and some eclectic noise work. You can tell he had fun with this reMix, just let himself go. It’s pretty spacey and just a little experimental but does kinda’ draw you in.
We dropped the news of Au Revoir Simone’s forthcoming reMix album last month and now, with the release drawing closer, we can preview some more tracks for you.
With am amazing line up of reMix talent going to town on everyone’s favourite Indie-Electro girls it hard not to get a little exited about the release. Aeroplane’s chilled ElectroPop jam is almost perfect female fronted electronic music for the summer, sounding a little like Freezepop but with more kick. Chillwave (that’s the first time I have used that word on this blog!) pioneers Neon Indian’s reMix is actually very cool. Deep, raw, analog synths flying all over the place is defiantly the way forward for Chillwave (I said it again!). Clock Opera don’t fail to live up to (high) expectation with an intricate and intelligent toy piano led track.
London’s Clock Opera have been dropping some stellar reMixes of late but it’s time to turn some attention to their own work.
Their second single, ‘A Piece Of String’ is released next month but you can preview it right here, right now. It’s a raw sounding collision between the Experimental and the Pop. A catchy, summery song built on a base of industrial percussion and found sounds. Not many could pull it off, Clock Opera do!
Utilising Marina’s unique voice in a way no other reMixer has really grasped, using it as an instrument, Clock Opera weave it in and out of their piano and strings backing creating something beautiful, epic and still danceable.
