Flying Moon In Space announce new 12" remix EP feat. A Place To Bury Strangers, Xiu Xiu, Suuns, Camera, Minami Deutsch & Warm Grave
Following the release of their self-titled debut album last year, Leipzig-based six-piece Flying Moon In Space are today announcing a new EP made up of remixes of tracks from the album and sharing a remix of ‘The Observer’ by Brooklyn noise-rock/shoegaze heavyweights A Place To Bury Strangers. Also featuring remixes by Xiu Xiu, Suuns, Camera, Minami Deutsch and Warm Graves, the remix EP arrives on January 28th and is set to be released digitally and on 12” vinyl by Fuzz Club Records. Out on all digital platforms today, you can stream ‘The Observer (A Place To Bury Strangers Remix) below.
With over 50 shows in their home-city (often live improvs lasting hours with 6/7 musicians on stage) and a couple of headline tours around Europe behind them, in 2020 Flying Moon In Space signed to London-based label Fuzz Club Records. In December that year, their self-titled debut was released to international praise – exhibiting a shapeshifting, fiercely experimental blend of psychedelic pop, krautrock, techno and math-rock. Now, the band are revisiting the album with the help of some of their favourite contemporary artists. Announcing the EP is a remix by A Place To Bury Strangers who, true to form, give the debut album’s lead single ‘The Observer’ a muscular, feedback-blasted redux. On the remix, Flying Moon In Space said:
“APTBS have influenced us very much in the long-term. Their wild live shows have had an especially great impact on us. I think that experience of pure, exploding joy on stage is definitely something that connects both APTBS and Flying Moon In Space. We learned of them quite a long time ago when they released their second album ‘Exploding Head’ in 2009 followed by a stunning live show in Hamburg. We were really excited to have them on board remixing ‘The Observer’ and hoped that we would get some of their distinctive noise sound. We were right in the middle of recording our upcoming album in the deep woods of Czech Republic when we received their remix and were really impressed and happy with the result.”
“For us it’s a really interesting process to have a new perspective on the album. While working in the studio you always come to the point where you have to let go and leave the tracks as they are. Through the remixes there is a chance to bring them alive again. We were thrilled with the creative approach of all the artists involved. They discovered new textures and sounds and put them together to create a new masterpiece. For us it’s a chance to rediscover each single track from a different angle and also listen to how other artists work in the studio. Every single band has its own individual sound and one thing is clear: you never know what to expect. That’s probably the most beautiful thing about working with remixes.”
