Free Download: Waylayers – “Magnets” Jack Robert Hardman Remix

10 Sep


Regular readers will know that we are big fans of Waylayers, a band we think is one the of the best new synth-pop-combo’s out there right now, and the multi-talented Jack Robert Hardman, who is not only our ’H’ band but was also responsible for one of our favourite albums of last year.

Why are we telling you this?

Because they recently joined forces (sort of) and the result is utterly fantastic.

It was almost a year ago when Waylayer’s dropped the wonderfully huge and atmospheric ”Magnets” with its vast synths and laser guided electronic sounds sprawling out across the sky like the legion of ball-bearings in the accompanying video. Now, Jack has provided a remix and, while it too is vast, it is in a completely different manner.

The original was soaring and full of energy but Jack has managed to break down its constituent parts and create something much more sedate and magical. Here the epic nature comes from the beautiful, glacial solitude it conveys. Like you’re lost in the middle of nowhere with nothing but the infinite whiteness of the ice and snow around you as the vocals whisper in your ear like the breeze brushing past and the piano clinks like icicles falling to the ground.

Get your free download from the player below and prepare to be transported to the Arctic wastelands. Pack your winter clothes.

Waylayers’ latest EP, ‘Fault Lines’, is out now and available to buy digitally. Jack Robert Hardman’s eponymous debut album is also out now and available to buy from iTunes.
