MAY ROUND UP & HURTS

May 29, 2009

Weather has been great for the past few todays and to make it even better I came across a new band formed from the ashes of Daggers called HURTS. This is their track Wonderful Life, I love it and can’t stop watching the video. The dancing reminds of something from the Tears for Fears ‘Mad World’ video.

Also really enjoying the new IAMX album “Kingdom of Welcome Addiction”

So what has been happened in our little world?

I’ve started assembling a collection of sounds for new material plus buying a few new bits of gear. I’m disappearing for a few weeks at the end of June to our Spanish retreat. I have bought the KORG nano key, a tiny USB keyboard so I’m planning to write some new things whilst away. I’m sure the views will inspire something but the alcohol might impede any good ideas, we’ll see.

Obviously we don’t have the innconvience of having to tour for a year to promote our album so we can get back into writing again. However we don’t want to continue where WIRED: left off as we want there to be a distinct evolution in our style.

The next release is currently named NK#3, not sure if this will be an album or EP, depends on what it sounds like, how long it takes to complete and if it’s any good of course.

We heard the remix for Crash by Parralox today and it’s pretty cool, this will go with the great remix of Crash that Oblique have also done along with our extended version. More news on this soon.

That’s it for now.
