65daysofstatic Release Taipei Video
They say: "The song began with some chance polyrhythms at the Gloria Hotel, Taipei, under the shadow of the 101 and above the hum of the MRT. Night markets selling bootleg operating systems and tofu; one of Calvino's cities made real; a lithe metropolis sculpted like a well EQ'd kick drum: all sub and crispy punch, the muddy low-end junk scooped out.
"We took all that back to Sheffield and tried to kick all the pretentiousness out of it. We found some melody to hold all that noise down for a while - so when it does get going, it really gets going."
Taipei is on sale as a single, complete with previously unreleased track Drone Not Drones. 65daysofstatic are currently on tour, with festival appearances planned here, in Europe and in Japan over the summer. Check out the video here.
