Bardi Johannsson is about to release his first album in 7 years as Bang Gang, and we have the UK premiere of his new single "Out Of Horizon".
Johansson might be better known these days as part of Starwalker and Lady & Bird, but the Icelandic composer has something completely different in store.
The tune smacks of Frengers-era Mew; angular post-punk revival axes pirouette around strobed bass caverns and taut falsetto vox. It's endlessly infectious to the point the WHO might want to get involved; this is the kind of Scandi-pop anthem that'll barricade itself deep into your grey walnut and refuse to leave without police intervention. It's gorgeous guitar-led noise, and serves as a mighty taster of Bang Gang's upcoming record.
