HE’s NOTHING if not prolific these days, Andy Bell; the muse must properly be with him.
Not content to announce a string of 12″, 10″ and 7″ epilogues to last year’s excellent The View From Halfway Down for Sonic Cathedral, he’s popped his GLOK guise on for a new single release that’s come totally out of the blue … maybe, given the cover art, that should be pink, but.
Yeps, GLOK has dropped a luxurious electro groove this morning, “That Time Of Night”, verdant with retro synth chatter, a gentle motorik that suggests observing and glorying in a cityscape after dark, the lights and the bustle and the hedonism and all the good things, all drawn together with a dulcet, dispassionate female vocal guiding you through. Cop a load at the bottom.
Not only that, but there’s also a stripped down, four-to-the-floor bangin’ minimalist remix from none other than Darren Emerson, which suggests an absolute need for losing it, and yourself, in the steam and the scent of a thousand strangers. Soon, yeah? Soon.
GLOK’s “That Time Of Night” is available right this sec digitally and on limited (300 only) pink vinyl 12″ over at Bandcamp.
