A1. Weird (Cold Pop Version)
A2. Weird (Brioski Remix)
B1. Weird (Brioski Bonus Mix)
B2. Go Away (Kid Machine Remix)


Dipping deeper into the inspiring pool of Italo-disco, electric disco pop-rock combo Mohear is happy to reveal their latest sonic endeavor, the moody but tasty Weird on the Electunes label. Led by the icy vocals of Miss Sophie, Weird slinks and shimmies as if sneaking through a dark alley, its steady drum beat and synthesized arpeggiations cautiously leading the way. The song itself is appealingly retro, as if time traveling from the post-punk 80s, but filtered though recent cosmic excursions. In fact, Mohear mastermind DJ Enne has played alongside the Italian cosmic pioneers Baldelli and Beppe Loda back in 1983 and one can certainly hear some of these influences in this production. Italian producer Brioski supplies a pair of remixes, with the first riding on a synthetic pulse accented by handy percussion flourishes. Brioskis Bonus Mix shakes a bit more, with an added techno influence flavoring its mid-tempo groove. As a bonus, Manchesters Kid Machine has remixed Mohears previous single Go Away, displaying a pop-Italo influence mixed with some dark EBM elements that fit right in with Weird. Kid Machines remix will be exclusive to the vinyl release which is hand-numbered and limited to 500 copies. Prime time stuff here from Electunes and Mohear, suitable for retronauts and futuristas alike.
