The Sound Of Arrows’ new single

thesoundofarrows

The Sound Of Arrows next slice of sweeping SynthPop euphoria (i.e. their next single) will be ‘Wonders’.

Continuing their recent leaning toward big room sounds, ‘Wonders’, is crazy uplifting, despite being quite mid-paced it’s really hands-in-the-air. This is dancing on the beach at sunrise stuff. There’s a video coming next week, which is something to look forward to if The Sound Of Arrows recent clips are anything to go by.

‘Wonders’ is released 31st October.

The Sound Of Arrows reMixed by Chad Valley

As featured in Edwin Van Cleef’s recent mix, here is Chad Valley’s reMix of The Sound Of Arrows’ new single, ‘M.A.G.I.C.’.

The track is pretty magical (no pun intended) as it is, but Chad Valley makes the song appear otherworldly with subtle vocal manipulation, reverb washed melodies and a deep, resonant, early 90’s House bassline. A complete departure from the uplifting EuroPop of the original, Chad’s reMix a soothing, hypnotic experience and a perfect compliment to both the single version and the video.

M.A.G.I.C. video from The Sound Of Arrows

The Sound Of Arrows just premiered video for their forthcoming ‘M.A.G.I.C.’ single is truly magical.

You wouldn’t necessarily think a post late-70’s-anime-inspired-monster-apocalypse clip would be so heart-warming, but it is. And pretty deep too.

Check out one of the classiest videos of the year.

The Sound Of Arrows’ ‘Nova’ reMixes

Sweden’s ruling SynthPop act, The Sound Of Arrows, forthcoming 90’s-Euphoric-Trance sounding single ‘Nova’ s release date draws near we are getting out first plays of some of the reMixes.

It’s not my favourite Sound Of Arrows track, although I love the video and the song itself is pretty awesome, some of the big hands-in-the-air trance riffs sound really out of place in the 21st century. I’m hoping this is a one off song and not a new direction for the duo. One of the more interesting reMixes comes from II Figures, who turn in a spacey Chillwave-esq mix. This percussion heavy, atmospheric, version shows off what a brilliant song ‘Nova’ actually is.

The Sound Of Arrows – Nova (II Figures reMix)

There is also a Tiësto reMix, which sends shivers down my spine a bit. The track is 90’s trance sounding enough, did they really need to pay someone something like £15,000 (or more!) to make it sound even more like 90’s trance? You can hear a bit here. Has everything Tiësto has made since 1997 sounded exactly the same? His reMix of this track is probably the most dated and irrelevant thing I have heard in the last six months…and I listen to a lot of 80’s music!

‘Nova’ is out 25th April on Geffen, The Sound Of Arrows have just finished recording their début album.

The Sound Of Arrows’ new video

The Sound Of Arrows made this video, for their forthcoming single ‘Nova’, themselves, which just goes to show they’ve got as good an eye for visuals as they do an ear for a catchy ElectroPop tune.

Anthemic, and surprisingly late 90’s sounding, ‘Nova’ works seamlessly with the cosmic imagery of the clip.

The Sound Of Arrows synth up The Naked & Famous

Sweeden’s kings of SynthPop, The Sound Of Arrows, have worked serious wonders with Neon Gold‘s The Naked & Famous and their recent single ‘Young Blood’.

A few new reMixes of ‘Young Blood’ are starting to come in but it’s the Swedish duo’s that really stands out mixing the New Zealand Indie-Electro with some hardcore synths which gives a whole new energy to the vocals. For something a little more chilled, try Pink Ganter’s traditional Japanese Dubstep mashup.

Alphabeat’s new single reMixed

Alphabeat

Scandinavian Wonky Popsters Alphabeat’s second studio album ‘The Spell’ hits stores on 1st March, just ahead of that they are paving the way with the single ‘Hole In My Heart’ on 22nd February.

‘Hole In My Heat’ is a slice of huge, pure Pop, genius and comes with a sweet array of reMixes.

Most notable, fellow Scandinavian’s The Sound Of Arrows, who are currently making waves amongst ElectroPop fans with their single ‘Into The Clouds’, turn their Dreamwave tinged Electro goodness on Anders and Stine’s vocals to create an instant classic Disco flavoured ElectroPop track.

Elsewhere, Wideboys create a big, radio friendly, dance tune, completely the opposite of Chew Fu’s broken beats, warp bass and Disco stabs.

Mille reMixes The Sound Of Arrows

TheSoundOfArrows

Ever since Mille’s reMix of Marina And The Diamonds ‘Mowgli’s Road’ I have had a thirst for all reMixes Mille.

Swedish Indie Pop act The Sound Of Arrows hare next up for Mille treatment and as per-usual he walks a big spacey line between Electro-House and Dreamwave. Here he mixes up 8-bit sounds, huge 80’s lead lines and some crazy side-chaining!
