Following the release of their new album ‘All The Unknown’ on City Slang in January, Grandbrothers have given their track “Organism” to Scotland’s legendary chart-topping band Mogwai for a propulsive, atmospheric remix.
Of the remix Mogwai’s Barry Burns comments: “I was listening to Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears For Fears a couple of days before starting the remix and thought I’d channel the guitar part from that into this remix. Seemed to fit nicely. Love the boys’ drum parts and just mangled them a little bit, replayed some piano lines on synths and a bit of my singing over the top of it all.”
On the leafy cover Grandbrothers invite the spectator to peer through the thick foliage of a hawthorn bush, seemingly powered by a similar sense of curiosity that informed this exploratory new record. Ditching the restrictions of their former setup, with their new record the Turkish-German/Swiss duo took a leap into the dense unknown—and landed on their feet.
The album All The Unknown is out now via City Slang.
