Gentle Stranger launch their remix album with a banging new single Insects in the Sugar Water Timidly Rupture Our Favourite Gullets remixed by Jennifer Walton.
The London based DJ and producer delivers a roller coaster of a track and her contribution to the album’s sleeve notes stikes a chord in the current COVID ridden climate: “We all know what's coming. One day the cruel radiation machine will lock onto a baddie, then fire a deadly beam. Right in your beak. Your fucking beak. Taste it and keep going.”
The video is a pulsating kaleidoscopic ride through the Gentle Stranger psyche, in the box room with Chris Cunningham re-cutting Sledgehammer with pinking shears.
It is representative of the giddy selection of remixes on ‘Loved and Unlearnt’, the re-imagined reworked edition of their debut album released earlier this year. Contributions from the bands friends and contemporaries make for mind altering collection.
