Fluqx' third single "Feather" is out today! Released alongside a striking new music video, premiered at Kaltblut Magazine. The release also includes a remix by Peder Mannerfelt as well as the last single "Staring At The Sun".
We are also very excited to finally announce Fluqx' upcoming album "Monolith", to be released on March 6th.
Fluqx duo Joel Krozer and Brian Della Valle have a unique chemistry in the studio, resulting in a heady mix of experimental electronics, seductive melodies and affecting vocals.
Joel explains, “Our idea with ‘Feather’ was to create a weightless universe where all the synths feel organic and effortless. We often work with images as opposed to musical references throughout the production process and for ‘Feather’ the slow motion video close ups of Bill Viola’s floating bodies was a key influence.”
The vocal synth that opens the track comes from playing back a recording of Joel’s voice, mapped across the keyboard for harmonisation. The drums are recorded in a church on the Island of Bornholm giving them a grand sense of scale. It makes for a majestic and airy piece of beautifully delicate electronic music that tugs at the heart strings while reaching for the heavens.
A typically amazing remix comes from Swedish techno pioneer Peder Mannerfelt, who adds a deep underground rave spin to proceedings, turning the original into a basement trip into the outer reaches of dance music. Peder is also known as The Subliminal Kid and for his production work for Fever Ray, Blonde Redhead or remixes for Massive Attack, Bat For Lashes and Lykke Li.
As well as these, previous single ‘Staring at the Sun’ is also included and rounds out a tantalizing new package from this on-point duo.
The ‘Feather’ music video is set in an endless black space that slowly fills with cascades of light and plays with a beautifully distorted reality. Watch the video here.
