World News Crash Land with New Single ~ In The Room

We've been waiting patiently and the day is finally here.

Hardware electronic duo – World News – have just released their first single of 2024, accompanied by a set of remixes so hot, you'll need to bathe in dry ice to cool yourself down.

It's steamy. It's sexy. It's a little confused. And it's all IN THE ROOM.

In The Room was recorded by World News at Safe Sounds, produced and mastered by Josh Korody.

Qu Mi and Bill Cutbill have been writing, recording and performing World News since January 2022, following the exile of Tyler Cooksley (more on that later).

This marks the first official release from the duo ~ though they have put out a couple of strictly limited edition GOLD tapes that have since flown the nest.

Well today, In The Room [SS124] arrives in style as a single with hard-hitting remixes from international artists including Eschaton Crises (LONDON, UK), MOONBEAN (TORONTO, CA), Personal Data (HAMILTON, CA), Asher Gould-Murtagh (MONTREAL, CA) and Josh Korody (TORONTO, CA).

You can listen to the whole thing on Spotify, iTunes, bandcamp or your preferred music platform. Trust me baby, it's free.

What's more, there's a music video coming soon, directed by previous collaborator, Danny Alexander. Alexander known for the pandemic documentary about the Toronto scene, No Tickets At The Door. Anyhow, we won't keep you waiting for too long I promise... subscribe here to be notified when it hits.

You can support Safe Sounds and its artists by listening to all of our releases on your preferred streaming platform, liking and re-listening. You can purchase directly from World News on their bandcamp, if you want to.

But there's no pressure at all. More importantly, we hope that this release reaches your ears and washes over you in a way that you enjoy and keeps your wanting more.

Stay tuned.

The Sin Gles Arrive on Shiny Orange on Orange on Orange Cassettes

Your Grandad are at it again, this time with the release of Sin Gles... an EP collection of, you guessed it, Singles. The best of the best of the best of the best.

We've released Sin Gles on strictly limited Safe Sounds cassette with an Orange on Orange on Orange theme. What's your favourite juice... AKA your juice opinion? Well of course, it's Orange Juice - the king of all the juices. Juicy fruits.

The release features a brand new remix of Your Grandad's classic track, 'Fake News', by our very own Bill Cutbill. Bill also came up with the cassette artwork and previously filmed the music video for Your Grandad's self-titled single.

Speaking of the Cockfosters remix, Bill explains -

"Cam and co had always been keen for me to hop on board to remix Your Grandad, and this one all started when I was travelling back to the UK via Dublin when my plane got delayed."

"I had my laptop on me, so decided to crack into the remix there and then in Dublin airport at 6am. I crafted the opening and recorded a sample from inside the airport terminal. The plane ended up being three hours late, which turned out to be the perfect amount because I later put a claim in to them and got refunded over $800 which pretty much paid for my return trip. Sometimes it's good to complain... always remember to complain."

"When I eventually landed in London, I jumped on the tube. The Piccadilly line service I was riding terminated at a station called Cockfosters, which the English voice over the tannoy reminded me of at every stop. In my jet lagged state I thought about the immature sense of humour of Your Grandad, and decided I should sample that as well."

"This remix doesn't really have a genre... it's more a journey through textures - the aim was to take you from the airport to a train journey, before dropping you down a spiral staircase, only to have you land on the other side of the earth entirely. I'll let you be the judge of whether I achieved that or not."

In addition to the Cockfosters remix, the Sin Gles includes the following tracks from their incredible debut album – Your Grandad, Poison, CERB and Aspartame. It's a rollercoaster ride that will try to throw you off at any moment.

So where do you grab one of these orange on orange on orange cassettes? We're not selling em online, cos the internet sucks, so if you want to secure some orange gold, you'll need to head to Toronto's Baby G on Tuesday April 9th ~

Wax Jaw, Your Grandad and Silks

Vinyl copies of Your Grandad's debut self-titled album are also available and should be purchased post-haste.
