Bdrmm Unleash New Single "Standard Tuning"

Hull-based dream pop/psych/shoegaze band Bdrmm have unleashed their new single “Standard Tuning“.

It follows the release of the band’s widely lauded second album “I Don’t Know”, and the autumn single release of “Mud” on Mogwai’s Rock Action label.

They have also announced their EU / UK headline tour, which starts 14th February, and support dates with DIIV in March. Full dates below.

The track forms part of a 10” release which will also feature a remix of the recent album’s opener and live favourite, “Alps”. The remix by English electronic musician and producer Nathan Fake will be available digitally from 19th April. The limited 10” format will feature an etched B-side. Grab it here.

Recorded during their album studio sessions for “I Don’t Know”, frontman Ryan Smith says of the single:

“Standard Tuning is an important track in the ever-changing development of our creative process, as it was a collaboration between myself and Jordan. I created the loop using techniques such as stretching samples and chopping them, and Jordan added synthetics and drum processing and structured it into the track you hear now. Lyrically, the words followed the loss of an old childhood friend. Despite the fact of not speaking to somebody for years, you still feel an atmosphere of upset and loss. The passing affected the Hull community in such a way that it was impossible not to be affected by it. The song is about loss and a tribute to old friends.”
