This split single includes a new track from both bands, recorded especially for this particular release:
We haven’t heard any new material from the legendary Pia Fraus in quite a while, so I was excited to learn of this new single! “Cloudy Eyes” contains all that we love about Pia Fraus: noisy shoegaze twangs, wispy boy/girl harmonies, and dreamy chords strumming gently on cloud 9. Was my mind blown? Is this surprisingly new? To be honest, no. Apart from that I don’t have a single objection to this new song….
Rocketship, a band I was totally unfamilar with so far, seem to be big fans of Stereolab just like their mates from the aforementioned band. The single “Outer Otherness” starts off as a darkish synth-pop track that is gradually blended with psychey effects and operatic vocals and ends up in a summer in Paris in the 60’s. I certainly don’t mind that!
