With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Upon finding major success back in 2007 with the release of their platinum-selling album with Warner Music U.K. titled In Silico - including hit singles such as ‘Propane Nightmares’ and ‘Granite’ - the journey for Pendulum was quite a rollercoaster during the late noughties when they were at the forefront of the drum and bass music scene. Formed in Perth in 2002 by founding members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, the Australian group took a seven-year hiatus in 2011 only to return with the announcement in 2018 that they would be returning with a new record label, Earstorm, as well as a remix album that features some of the biggest electronic names and their musical interpretation of some of the band’s best tracks in a way never heard before by fans.
The collaborators involved on this remix project known as The Reworks includes the likes of Noisia with their dark twist of ‘Hold Your Colour’, a tropical dubstep take on ‘The Island - Pt. 1 (Dawn)’ by Skrillex, Moby bringing trance-like euphoric pads to ‘Vault’, in addition to reworks by Icarus, Devin Townsend, Futurebound, as well as Swire and McGrillen’s side project Knife Party. With the festival season here this summer ahead of the band’s many appearances across Europe and the US, this comeback release is guaranteed to get your heart racing in anticipation of the good things to come from this iconic group.
Pendulum will be headlining the BBC Radio 1 Stage at Leeds Festival on Sunday 26th August.
