EB Video Premiere: Golden Axe – Space Fire

The New Zealand duo Golden Axe released their fourth album Liquid Bacon on Prague-based AMDISCS label at the end of last year.

Hot on the heels of their buoyant European live shows, they deliver “Space Fire”, a friendly invitation into their opaque world of simulacra, coupled with a wholeheartedly humane sense of urgency apparent from the sonic side of things. A psychedelic stroll – orchestrated by director Simon Ward ‪– through lysergic computational aesthetics as a dreamy escapism and raw, synth sounds courtesy of Daif King and Chris Cudby. What is virtual and what real these days anyway?
