(By our Norwegian correspondent Jan Ronald Stange)
Electro Spectre are keeping themselves busy in these quarantined times and follows up their first single of 2021 – ‘A Different Kind Of Love’ – with the new EP ‘The Endless Sky’, released March 19th on various digital platforms.
Included on the EP are two remixes of ‘The Endless Sky’ in addition to a Radio Edit, a remix by the singer Alexander Bjørneboe and two top tracks from their remix contest for their previous single, and an yet unreleased upcoming album song in a ‘Bare Version’ from their corona lock-down ‘Home Sessions’ recorded last year.
Alexander also collaborated with music video director Rune Hov on directing the music video for this release in addition to doing the artwork – we are going to space in this one! The raw material were old cartoon magazines from the 60’s. Then a lot of time were spent cropping, editing and retouching the graphics, and finally assembled into a story for the video. See examples below:
In parallel to releasing the single Electro Spectre also spent the last weeks remixing the next Zeromancer single, ‘Mourners’, the follow-up to their February release ‘Damned le Monde’. Fans of both bands should mark Friday April 23rd in their calendars – ‘Mourners’ is that kind of track that brings out the best of both bands!
EP available @ Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and Youtube.
