After their outstanding self-titled debut album (2011) and the breathtaking subsequent album “Choirs of Blessed Youth” (2014), the Swedish post punk / shoegaze band lead by Fernando Honorato, true to their vision, continues to carve out its own unique musical path.
As a first glimpse of their new album “Oceans”, to be released in early May, the new song and video "Strangers in The Night" was revealed on March 10th.
The song is produced and mixed by the band themselves and the accompanying video is made by Swedish director Jacob Frössén, who among other things created the acclaimed documentary films "En film om Olle Ljungström" and "Henric De La Cour" in Sweden.
As B-sides to the single, there are two remixes made by the Swedish synth producer Mister Monell, and by the dark pop/electro band New Canyons Chicago who made the song ready for the dancefloor.
"Strangers in The Night" will be available for download from 10th of March onwards through all major online stores and the band's Bandcamp page.
Friday, November 25th is the official release of the new Golden Apes album "M Ʌ L V S“ . The CD comes in a special digipak, accompanied by a 16 pages booklet, designed and created by Phoeniques Arts to reflect the 13-track jewel hidden within.
"M Ʌ L V S“ dawns in cooperation with af-music and altone distribution.
After "Riot", the latest official output from 2012, the GOLDEN APES will release "The Langsyne Litanies" on October the 31st at last, for clearing the way for things to come.
Inspired by their acoustic tour earlier that year the band chose 5 personal favourites from their canon to reinterpret them while looking back and rearrange them while taking a step forward, deliver them from the chronological dust and restructure their tonal nucleus. By using mainly acoustic instruments, like classic guitars, percussions, a cello, flutes and even a tuba the process bore a soundscape wherein familiar sounds reflected in a new way, sloughed aurally and detached from any tense.
Including 3 brand-new tracks "The Langsyne Litanies" became more than the planned EP, but an album that mirrors the band's versatility and their many facets in an unusual and impressing way. "The Langsyne Litanies" will be available as an limited edition (restricted to 333 copies) only.
