reveal cover of Moderat classic ‘Rusty Nails’
Taken from debut cinematic album ‘Inside’
“A sprawling hybrid of club-based sounds and organic instrumentation” – XLR8R
New super pairing of veteran electronic producer Miguel López Mora and Placebo’s Stefan Olsdal unveil a stunning reinterpretation of Moderat’s classic track ‘Rusty Nails’, taken from their orchestral inspired electronic debut album ‘Inside’ due this October.
Miguel details the track: “‘Rusty Nails’ is a cover from the band Moderat. When we made it we felt like we were inside a music box. The string quartet was at hand in the studio and Stefan played the broken piano riff of the song and these together made it a perfect scenario to emulate a music box. It is a very soft vision of the original song.”
Already acclaimed in their own right with their own projects, the album was the result of a burgeoning friendship within the fringe music scene in Madrid, revealing the multi-facetted duo in perfect union and brought about the birth of D I G I T A L 2 1 + S T E F A N O L S D A L.
With strings recorded in the legendary RAK studios in London, the tracks developed first as instrumentals, then evolving into songs with the addition of female vocalists, and the album features the singers Cuushe (Japan), Margrét Rán from Vök (Iceland), Helen Feng from Nova Heart (China) and Julienne from Saschienne (France / Germany).
After a couple of singles, the debut album, ‘Inside’, is now ready for release on limited edition, white-coloured vinyl, CD and digitally, via Kobalt Music Recordings in October 2017.
