Out now on Eskimo Recordings. http://newsrecords.lnk.to/mechanicalsparrow
Deep in the depths of Norway (Bergen to be precise), https://soundcloud.com/atella and O. Martin have been brewing up â€˜Mechanical Sparrowâ€™ for Eskimo recordings, with club remix and rework from Man Power.
The original gives a nod to their expansive environment and the sounds of Air or Royksopp, sweeping melodies, majestic vocals, and luscious French â€œPhoenixâ€ guitar. The Atella Club Mix is friendlier for those seeking out the ebbs of the night, while Man Powerâ€™s remix reveals the bare bones of â€˜Mechanical Sparrowâ€™, itâ€™s delicate wings in pensive flight contemplating a divine dreamstate, in the style of Mount Kimbie and Bonobo.
Atella are Magnus & Johannes who hilariously stumbled upon each other at a piggy back race. They have remixed fellow Norwegian Lindstrom and indie-electronica outfit Lemaitre. They debuted on Eskimo with â€˜The Monsterâ€™ back in 2014, a track that was recently featured in â€˜Screamâ€™, the TV series spin off from the film trilogy. Back then they were remixed by UK electronic darlings, Stubborn Heart, while Atellaâ€™s latest release features a remix from another UK aficionado, Man Power, the elusive producer for his work on Correspondent and John Talabotâ€™s Hivern Discs.
The track features O. Martin, a close musical ally of Aurora (infamous for the music on the current John Lewis Christmas ad) which gave life to this collaboration, as Atella explains â€œWhen Atella and O. Martin met in the studio in Bergen, Norway, there was chemistry right away. They just started jamming, recorded several acoustic instruments and then brought in the organic-electronic sound. O. Martin composed text and melody and Mechanical Sparrow was born.â€
