LISTEN: Midnight Juggernauts ‘Memorium’
As you may have already noticed, MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS are entirely back on the scene, after not releasing any material since The Crystal Axis three years ago.
Striking us with their discreet film clip for their comeback track, ‘Ballad Of The War Machine’, the Melbourne three piece have since toured the single (with pals YesYou) along the East Coast and announced their forthcoming record Uncanny Valley.
With its release still ahead of us, the boys have treated our anticipation with the albums second single, ‘Memorium’.
A lot seems to be going on instrumentally in this track. If you were to slice it in half, you’d find an abundance of layers; some thicker than others. There’s synths, piano, drums, keys, cowbell, guitar and so much more. It even sounds like a violin is present for the opening of the track but could easily be a misunderstood electric guitar. The entire feel of ‘Memorium’ is a little bit dark, and almost seems like we’re saying goodbye to something with a very futuristic, mystic soundtrack.
Both ‘Ballad Of The War Machine’ and ‘Memorium’ have been released on 12″ vinyl together, alongside the Turkish Prison Dub version of Uncanny Valley‘s first single. Grab a copy through Record Makers HERE.
Uncanny Valley will be co-released via Siberia Records and Remote Control on 14th June.
