It’s been a fruitful season for mega-talented European dance music producers remixing HAIM’s Days Are Gone opener and breakthrough hit “Forever” — shouts to Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas and TCTS — and Euro dance greats don’t come greater than Giorgio Moroder. Now Daft Punk’s hero has unveiled his own take on the sister act’s signature track (OK, some of us ride for “The Wire“).
The band just completed a tour with Thirty Seconds To Mars where they played to an amazing 250,000 people in the UK and Europe. Their recently announced dates will be their first UK headlining shows since they played a tremendous sold out show at Wembley almost a year ago. Prior to this tour the band will be out in Europe for more headline dates.
The album, set for release a week after the single, is their fourth to date and first for new label BMG. You Me At Six have already sold 400,000 albums worldwide, with 2011’s ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ reaching No. 3 in the UK Album Charts and each release going gold.

Tom Haines explains the video: “Jon's music has a transportive quality, which can be blissful and expansive, but can also be internal, and more aggressive, and Collider is at this end of the spectrum. We wanted to create an internal journey, which was unflinching, singular and claustrophobic and at the same time liberating. The video is like a voodoo ceremony, where the lead character dances herself into frenzy, and through the dance gains access to a parallel dimension; it's her unfurling thoughts, her dislocated mind, and hints at something more apocalyptic - an end game for her and us.”

If you know Scott Reitherman, it’s probably because you know his indie pop band Throw Me The Statue (a Band To Watch back in 2007), but that is likely to change soon with his new project, Pillar Point. “Eyeballs,” an ode to the loneliness of social networking and the first single off PP’s upcoming debut, hits every pleasure center you want when it comes to synth pop. Reitherman’s gloomy, heart-on-sleeve vocals skip along with the bright hyper-melodic synths that sound like something from a Sega Genesis rejuvenated just in time to ring in 2014. Meanwhile that keyboard sweep hook is almost frustratingly addictive. Listen and check out a trailer for the album below.
