You might remember Man Without Country from their European shows with M83 last fall, or perhaps from their excellent remixes of Active Child and School of Seven Bells. Now the Cardiff duo are releasing their own singles, beginning with ‘Puppets’. Released April 9th via Lost Balloon/Cooperative Music, it’s an otherworldly blend of uplifting, eerie synths topped with space-age vocals. The single comes with a re-imagining of Björk‘s ‘All Is Full of Love’ as well as two remixes by Big Black Delta and Error Operator. We’re pleased to have the premier of the latter, reworked by the London DJ/producer into a speedy, twinkly joy with touches of Balearic house and video-game techno. Download and stream it below, and watch the outer-limits pastel video of the original too.
