Published Sep 15, 2015Synth-y Vancouver post-punks Gang Signs have an album on the way, and having already premiered the track "Mate," that tune has now got a remix courtesy of Canadian producer Heroshe.
While the original version of the track was an atmospheric, shadowy new wave track akin to The xx, this remix emphasizes the dark wooziness of the arrangement by stripping away the guitars and eliminating all of the vocals save for some chopped-up, wordless snippets. In their place, we hear spooky drum machine syncopations and softly swirling synth pads.
Hear it below.
Gang Signs' album Geist is due out on October 2 through File Under: Music. On the release day, the band will be hosting an art show/release party at 436 Columbia Street in Vancouver. Gang Signs will perform a DJ set, and artists are encouraged to submit their own interpretations of the band's logo for inclusion in the art show. Learn more about the event on Facebook.
