Originally appearing on THUMPERMONKEY's 2018 Make Me Young, Etc album, Dan gives the song a very different spin by stripping it to its bare elements and building it up again from scratch whilst incorporating elements of electronica and jazz.
Dan commented: "This song spoke to me because it has a naturally haunting nature, but I also really loved the dynamic shift that happens in the latter third of the track. It made me think of starting the track with the explosion and then really going on a surreal dreamlike kind of psychedelic journey to even further be a mirror image of the original version of the track."
Vocalist / Guitarist Michael Woodman commented: "It was great to have the opportunity to pop backstage at a recent BTBAM London show to thank Dan first hand for his version of our track. I thought that the original was weird enough, so it's fascinating to see how somebody can react to a piece, and then totally reimagine it from the ground up so that it scores even higher on the wonkiness scale."
This follows the release of multi-instumentalist Rael Jones' piano play-through of the track. Premiered via Gear Gods on Friday 15 February, check it out here: https://youtu.be/IWKfcMKhiuI
