the sound of arrows + fear of tigers.


about a year ago, i first came across the sound of arrows and their great track 'danger!'. ever since, they followed up with the gorgeous 'm.a.g.i.c.' and just released their new twelve-inch 'into the clouds' on the always amazing neon gold. 'into the clouds' is yet another great example of their elevated pop songcraft but what really blew me away is the remix by fear of tigers who is easily on top of the whole 'dreamy club tracks' game right now - masterpiece!

another fact that makes the sound of arrows really special is that they also make all the artwork (as seen above) and videos themselves, resulting in two of this year's most beautiful videos for both the original and the remix of 'into the clouds'.

show the sound of arrows and fear of tigers some myspace love and head over to the neon gold shop or puregroove to order the limited vinyl, neon gold's first twelve-inch release after a series of seven-inches! congratulations!

I think that i'm going to say has nothing to do with the sound of arrows, but in this ad of the nokia N900, at 1"30 there is a wink of discodust blog.

great song... vocals sound a lot like Duran Duran - Hungry Like the Wolf

I do not see Duran Duran as much as I see an Animal Collective cover-band (with a love for Abba) recruiting the Pet Shop Boys to do this song.

The Remix video is more a hommage to the movie Explorers from 85 since allmost all the material is taken from it. Skllfully done indeed.
