ENTER SHIKARI 
Anaesthetist ‘Behind The Scenes’ video / Chart Action

Enter Shikari released their 4th studio album ‘The Mindsweep’ at the start of this week. The album is currently sat at #3 in the UK Official Album Chart, battling it out with the likes of Mark Ronson, Ed Sheeran and co and on-track for the highest first-week album sales of their career thus far.

The band have today made available a short ‘Behind The Scenes’ video from the promo video shoot of their current single ‘Anaesthetist’.

Also this week, Enter Shikari recorded a live session for Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio One show where, alongside two of their own compositions, they threw in the wild card of a cover of the Game Of Thrones theme. Such has been the response to that, discussions for a proper release have been started. More news soon.

The band start their tour of Europe / UK on Monday 2nd February in Paris, France, continuing through until the end of February and ending with two sold out shows at London’s 3000 capacity Camden Roundhouse.

Directed by Dave Tyn known for the YouTube viral short ‘Just Saying’ and based on author Dave Rudden’s ‘Bleached’.

Dave Rudden recently came to fame for landing a lucrative publishing deal for a three-book series that rivals J.K Rowling, a new fantasy novel series for teenagers. Dave has a cameo in the video as one of the office workers. Specifically, he’s the ginger guy beside the fan.

The track is the second single taken from Jape’s new album ‘This Chemical Sea’, set for release on Monday 26th January.

‘If you’re looking for music that’s emotionally engaging, texturally lush, loaded with detail, adventurous in spirit and melodically rich, then Jape are worthy of your time.’ Drowned in Sound

‘The strong hooks bring you in and the downbeat material creeps up on you.’ The 405

 

The prolific Richie Egan returns with Jape’s fifth studio album ‘This Chemical Sea’, available fromJanuary 26th on Faction Records.

Revered by critics and fans alike in their native Ireland, Jape is the only act to have received theMeteor Choice Award for best Irish album twice: for their third album ‘Ritual’ (2008) and their last full length effort ‘Ocean of Frequency’ (2011).

On this LP, Jape have tangibly honed their sound, and written what the band calls ‘the first album which has a uniquely ‘Jape’ sound from start to finish, a type of gothic pop with lyrics of unusual depth.’ The record combines the mindset of genre-bending music that the band have always been admired for with a strict adherence to a pop format. It incorporates a nod to some of Egan’s biggest experimental influences (Voices from the Lake, Raymond Scott, The Microphones), but never veers away from placing the songs firmly within the frame of the pop genre.

The hooks throughout the LP are strong and resonate above the bouncing keyboards, particularly on the record’s lead single ‘The Heart’s Desire’. The Peaking Lights remix of the track, which premiered on The Line of Best Fit and received coveted airplay on Huw Stephens’ show, takes the song’s irresistible melodies and lets them flow for seven minutes, highlighting the band’s talent for penning an irresistable chorus.

The record’s strengths are enhanced by the skilful mix of David Wrench, who has worked with the likes of FKA Twigs, Caribou, and Jungle. The powerful melodies are nurtured, but never at the expense of the stunning instrumentation on tracks such as album opener ‘Seance of Light’, where the synthesisers shimmer and shine on a sea of deep electronic bass lines, along with other album highlights ‘Love on the Crest of a Wave’ and ‘Absolutely Animals’.

Following an extensive tour of Australia and Europe, Egan relocated to Malmo, Sweden in 2012, where he found a studio to write and record the majority of the new record. Egan explained his intention was to ‘make a coherent album that was a pure expression of my inner thoughts.’ Far from an insular process however, this was the first time somebody else was let in on the creative process. The tracks would be shared with fellow band member Glenn Keating for feedback, something Egan feels ‘was inspiring and helped me to push myself so much harder.’

Further adding to the collaborative aspect of the album, mercury prize nominated Villagers’frontman Conor O’Brien features on the LP’s penultimate song ‘Ribbon Ribbon Ribbon’. However, regardless of outside influence, Egan also manages to demonstrate his penchant for taking inspiration from the personal, such as in the staggeringly beautiful final piano line of ‘Breath of Life’. This was written the same week his mother fell extremely ill, and its melody is something he believes reflects the ‘magical quality of music and its ability to induce memory’’.

As a man who has worked in many bands prior to, and alongside, Jape (The Redneck Manifesto, Villagers, David Kitt), Richie Egan has an impressive back catalogue of work, but ‘This Chemical Sea’ may well be considered his greatest achievement thus far. It is a compelling pop record with all the attributes of an album which will last well beyond its 2015 release.

OK Go to release single ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’
from Hungry Ghosts album released on February 16th
by 
Paracadute via BMGUK live show at Koko, London on 13th February

Stream track: 

https://soundcloud.com/okgo/the-writings-on-the-wall?in=okgo/sets/hungry-ghosts

LA’s OK Go are set to release their epic pop single ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’ in the UK, taken from their new album Hungry Ghosts, both out on Monday 16th February by Paracadute via BMG.

While the song, which was heard in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, concerns a relationship that may be at its end, the dizzying video, packed with optical illusions that blur the line between reality and imagination, affirms that OK Go are still very much in love with the video-making process.

Directed by Aaron Duffy, OK Go’s Damian Kulash and Bob Partington, ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’ is the first video shot with the Panasonic LUMIX GH4, which utilizes 4K video recording technology. Like all of OK Go’s videos, ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’ is a single shot video. However, preparations for that single shot took two months and involved 61 run-throughs. The anamorphic illusions seen on screen are a tip of the hat to artists Felice Varini, Georges Rousse and Dan Tobin-Smith.

On the new album Hungry Ghosts, the band chose to work with longtime producer and friend Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT), while also enlisting a new collaborator in Los Angeles, veteran Tony Hoffer, (Beck, Phoenix, Foster the People) to create their most comfortable and far-reaching songs yet.

“As the band has evolved over the last 15 years, the creative palette we work with has expanded in so many unexpected and gratifying directions,” says frontman Damian Kulash. “This record feels like it’s the musical manifestation of that — like we can speak in a clearer voice when we are playing in a bigger sandbox. Just as the band’s whole project became clearer to us as we learned to find more homes for our creativity — we triangulated it from more directions. And, I think the music itself has gotten more focused for similar reasons. We went in with fewer preconceptions of who we are or what our sound is, and came out with a record that sounds much more uniquely our own because of it.”

OK Go will return to the UK for a one off show at London’s Koko on 13th February 2015 ahead of their album released on 16th February via Paracadute / BMG. Tickets are available now from http://po.st/OkGoKoko.Pre-order the album at http://po.st/GSPO.
