Sadly, CAMP Basement has closed its doors, and this event will now be taking place at Electrowerkz.
Norfolk retro-futurist Nathan Fake returns with brand new single ‘Iceni Strings’: a typically bold reframing of the Zeitgeist, where burbling organic synths meet a deliciously crunchy techno rattle in one glorious, exuberant pre-apocalyptic braindance.
Unmistakably Nathan Fake, but with a warmer take on the hard-edged techno that dominated previous longplayer ‘Hard Islands’, the deceptively simple melody of ‘Iceni Strings’ resonates with a campfire folk memorability that becomes the Iceni, the ancient Norfolk-dwelling Celtic tribe who lend their name to the title. “I just felt like the whole track had a total Celtic tribal campfire vibe to it!”, Nathan explains.
The cheeky 12” vinyl and digital release comes backed with two equally blistering B- sides: previously unreleased symphonic live anthem ‘Sense Head’, and the fresh-to- tape steely, austere metropolitan soundscape of ‘Bauxite Dream’.
‘Iceni Strings’ is a fitting first single for his nostalgically-titled third album ‘Steam Days’, due for release late August on Border Community.
