A richly cinematic track filled with delicately twinkling piano and lavish strings, Petr Aleksänder’s new single ‘Copy, Echo, Mirage’ sees the band move away from their instrumental roots with the inclusion of a haunting vocal from Tom Hobden.
Talking about the origins of the track, Tom explains “being enraptured by someone but having the pains of past love never quite letting you stay in the moment. The song’s underlying sentiment questions over and over whether this new relationship can go the journey without succumbing to the inevitable pitfalls that everyone faces along the way….”.
In addition to the release of this new EP, Pêtr Aleksänder will also release a re-imagined version of the latest RIDE album “This Is Not A Safe Place” via Wichita Records this month. Having done this previously for artists including Interpol, Mumford and Sons, Geowulf and Banfi, these re-imagined releases see Tom and Eliot delve into other artists’ songs, stripping back all the music to leave just a vocal melody then completely re-writing, re-structuring, re-arranging, ultimately “re-imagining” the song in the Pêtr Aleksänder style.
