The Scottish glitch-wave outfit Park Planet surfaced with a new track yesterday.
Prior to listening to The Ba Bang, do make sure the windows and doors are opened, not to cause maximum disturbance to others rather the reverse, as, regardless of the volume, like a shaken bottle of fizz, on uncorking the track a wave of pressure bursts out of the speakers that otherwise would break door hinges and window glass.
Always, on receipt of a note by Park Planet that there is a new song about, I never quite know what I will be invited to hear, though I do know it will always be an aural feast of unbridled proportions and The Ba Rang, with its ebbing and froing wooshes of synthesis, which has an industrial dystopia to the soundtrack, is a further example.
The Scottish nu-disco outfit Park Planet revealed a new track within the past twenty hours.
Through is a further track to be released which is sign-posted as coming from the tale of the long projected second album, with the working title Rebel, Rebel.
The song has a more electronic and jazz influenced layering than much of their material that has featured over the years, with instrumentation playing a backdrop with a draw that minds of Ashley Reaks though of divergent process in which Park Planet take the listener on a trippy-step around the dance-floor in its just under four and a quarter minutes duration rather than a bleak journey of disquiet.
The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are still working towards the release of the LP Rebel Rebel.
Given the history of my relationship with Park Planet since 2012, I can safely say they keep a diary as poorly as I. The most recent email to which I responded, just a few moments ago was one from April 2015. But none of that matters as creating music is what they are good at doing and most recently to surface was the track We Can’t Stop You.
In theory the LP Rebel Rebel will be released this year, however even they are doubtful of this idea and although this is stated as the second track track to be revealed from the LP, which may well have changed its name by the time of its arrival, do bear in mind this is in principal the third track from the album I have featured that reference to it – with the first indication of the new LP and the track – Dropping It – having been introduced back in 2015. Which makes their conundrums all the more a pleasure.
My advice however is to always enjoy new tracks as they arise, as they are always worth holding close the the chest.
To rewrite that introductory paragraph again – We Can’t Stop You – which may on may not be an on LP, that may not ever be released, that may or may not end up being called Rebel Rebel. Turn down all other noises and immerse yourself in the just over three and a half minutes of hip snaking music.
The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are finalising details for the LP Rebel Rebel.
Park Planet – Rebel Rebel – artwork
A band who have featured on the site from time to time since their introduction in 2012. Over the years their style has evolved and the newest track – Collisions – finds them delivering a piece which will have a natural home at an after-party.
A while in gestation, the album Rebel Rebel was signposted over a year ago, with Collisions being the first composition to come from the LP. On the basis of the latest song -I reconfirm what I said in September 2015 – I look forward to hearing the full release.
