The greek band Virgins O.R Pigeons have launched a remix contest. The band has 2 tracks up for remixing: "Bleed to lead" and "Born in sin". The deadline for entering your remix is August 18, so there is no time to lose. Enter your e-mail below if you want to take part, you'll get all details (remix kits, where to send the remix etc) sent to you immediately.
The 3 winners of the remix contest will be handpicked by the band and their names will be announced by end of August 2013. Winners will have their remix featured on the forthcoming Virgins O.R Pigeons album (or single) to be released this Autumn on Alfa Matrix. Winners will also each receive a free copy of the new Virgins O.R Pigeons album.
The band recently released the single "Bleed to lead" which is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon MP3 and many other download stores.
The German duo Junksista is back with a naughty summer single, "Naked Wet Hot". The tongue in cheek lyrics will for sure be a nice refreshment for this rather hot summer. You can order the single now on Bandcamp (with more online download stores to follow in the next days) and get 2 tracks as immediate download.
It's has taken them one hell of a time, but we can finally start with the first new material coming from the Greek sensation VIRGINS O.R PIGEONS! The 4-track single "Bleed To Lead" is available now via Bandcamp in pre-order (with 2 immediate downloads when you buy it) with many other download shops to follow in the next days.
Here’s the brand new Psy’Aviah animated music video for the track “Letting Go”. Animated & directed by Emily Weeks. You can watch the clip on youtube via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtIy2YYH7ds, or watch it embedded below.
The story behind the video is tightly coupled with the song’s meaning, lyrics and atmosphere. We chose to use a limited color palette: three colors, being black, white and red – and no extra decoration or background. It’s plain, basic, all of this to put extra focus on the story and the emotions.
As Director Emily Weeks puts it:“The main character, Valerie, is depicted in a story that takes place in the 1940s. Valerie’s hair is a reflection of her interior psychological state. She suffers a traumatic event, after which her hair becomes wild – with pieces flying out irratically.”
“Finally she becomes a nun because she just can’t cope with the unpleasant memories and thoughts. To become a nun, she must cut her hair. In becoming a nun she is completely trying to deny and become detached from her past, a desperate act the success of which is questionable.”
The immediate download you get is the very catchy club mix of the track "Escape". The mix was made by the band's singer Erlend Eilertsen who has already shown his dance remix talents for such bands as Nitzer Ebb (for the Belgian edition of their "Industrial Complex" album - which you can download right here), I:scintilla and so on.
The single features 4 tracks, including the single edit, club remix, and remixes by Henrik Bäckström (Necro Facility) and Junksista. This release is the follow-up to the band's recent "Indifference" album. Notice that next to the 4 tracks you will also get access to 4 promo pictures taken for the occasion.
Psy'Aviah, having recently released their new EP "Future Past", has started a blog series "Behind The Song" in which they elaborate on the writing process, production, ideas behind the lyrics and so forth.. Expect technical things with sound clips, as well as more emotional and/or fun facts!

Out now via Bandcamp, iTunes etc are 3 new singles/EPs from Psy'Aviah, Halo In Reverse and Lovelorn Dolls. You can pre-listen all the tracks on our Bandcamp page and also download them in the format that you want:
The new “Future Past” EP will build on PSY'AVIAH's previous album ”Introspection/Extrospection”, and take it one step further. Having tasted electro-pop, dubstep and electro-house… we decided again to make it our own. Resulting in a blend of ambient-dubstep on “Circles”, ballad like electro-pop on “Letting Go”, pure EBM vs Electro-House with acid elements on “Look Beyond”, and some dubstep-electro influences VS ambient textures on “Paused” and “Our CommonFuture”. The EP reminds us through the lyrical themes how we all keep struggling with past trauma: “… time and time again making the same mistakes… I guess it’s true when they say that people never change” (taken from the track “Circles”).
In true PSY’AVIAH tradition, this EP is again crowned by another prestigious collaboration: with miss Kyoko Baertsoen (former HOOVERPHONIC artist & co-founder of LUNASCAPE). Her unique voice & timbre perfectly fits the very emotional song “Our Common Future”.
And there's more, but that's for you to discover when the release will hit the streets, keep an eye on PSY'AVIAH & Alfa Matrix!
