Tales in Space are a brilliant & awesome pair of chaps from Sydney, Luke Bert & Pieman, who write, play & record their own tunes and, you know, occasionally in their spare time dress up as scientists and conduct experiments.
You may have heard of these guys as they released an EP in 2010 with a RAD little catchy song called ‘Work You Out’ that a fair bit of airplay. Then came ‘Ghost In The Room‘, other cool stuff like a cover of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep‘ for a Ministry of Sound comp, and loads funky remixes including Dappled Cities, John Steel Singers & Art Vs Science.
For their new track, ‘Starwars‘ seems like a somewhat inappropriate title, given all I could hear in the track was the hours and hours I spent as a kid playing Supermario on my block of a gameboy. It was not the laser and tie-fighter noises I was expecting, but I admit to enjoying the surprise, although perhaps lacking the oomph their previous releases. The track does comes with a pretty cool video though, where the pair become crazy mad scientists.
This new track does signal the boys are out of hibernation so hopefully we can expect some new stuff before 2012 is out.
