Following on from their latest LP ‘Abnocto’, which
came out in March, Andrew
Armstrong and Ra Black are back with ‘Re|Vision’, a
10-track EP featuring
reworkings of classic and new tracks, from the likes of Beck, Lana Del Ray,
Phoenix, The Magic Numbers, Shura and more.
Andrew has put together a few words on each track to give the project some context:
Maybe I'm Crazy
We reworked our original into something
new for live. And this is the result. It has been working so well we
decided to record it as is
One of our Pledgers commissioned this, through our Pledge
campaign. They picked a good cover for us. Thanks for the support and
Love Is Just A Game
Magic Numbers cover.
We played a show with the Magic Numbers in Spain, and it reminded us of how good this track is
Lana Del Rey cover.
This is actually a 'mashup' of our track Phoenix Alive, with Lana's vocal over the top. It's amazing how well it works together
Girls and Boys
got Dita Von Teese to record this in Ibiza when we were on holiday with
her there. We set up a studio in a spare bedroom and called it "Voice
of an Angel" studios

campaign through the "be on a track" option. Thanks Angelo D'Agostino,
Mike Benning and Lottie Rose for their vocal contributions

once you get inside a song, do you fully understand the song. Having
done this cover, I am sure this is about male erectile dysfunction
A newer artist, this is simply an amazing song
Gold In The Eternal Flame
The Bangles cover.
This is actually mashed up with the Monarchy track Gold In The Fire
