MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY
GIVE AWAY RE-WORK OF ROYKSOPP’s “SORDID AFFAIR” – Listen below
12 DATE UK TOUR BEGINS THIS WEE
Following the success of their collaboration with Nordic kindred spirits on Royksopp’s ” Sordid Affair”, ahead of their UK tour this week Welsh electronic duo Man Without Country have revealed their own version of the song. Released today as a FREE download via their Soundcloud page, the track was first released on Royksopp’s 2014 LP The Inevitable End.
Travelling to the duo’s Bergen studio in Norway by special request to of the band, Man Without Country’s Ryan James lay down the tender vocals of the original version in summer 2014.
Now as the band comprising of Ryan James and Tomas Greenhalf, will hit the road this week for a 12 date UK tour they have promised to include their own distinct version of the track at the live shows which kick off at Manchester’s Ruby Lounge on the 19th February and round-off at London Birthdays on the 4th of March.
The synth pop duo have just released their sophomore LP, Maximum Entropy, an album which combines sleek electronic minimalism with a love of classic pop music, drawing critical comparisons to a rich lineage of predecessors including The Human League, Pet Shop Boys, Chromatics and more. The album was recorded, produced and mixed entirely by the band in their home studios in South Wales, and features a stunning cover of The Beloved’s ‘Sweet Harmony’, now a staple of their live set.
As remixers, Man Without Country have a varied CV that’s seen them remix everyone from Two Door Cinema Club and Band Of Skulls to Moby, Miike Snow and Active Child. In a package that includes Erol Alkan and Factory Floor, the band recently remixed the Interpol single My Desire.
