Nature of Wires - Within 250px.jpg

We are delighted to announce a brand new synthpop collaboration with up and coming Anglo/Burmese duo Machina X.  Here's what Machina X has to say about this exciting new release:

"We’ve admired and wanted to work with Nature of Wires for a while and this collaboration has been such a great experience - he’s a total pro, one of the good guys.  We’re all delighted with how this track has turned out.  Within reflects and highlights a sense of conflict many have between wanting to show an attractive outward image but risking objectification because of it - the observed vs the observer.  Overt objectifying on the many 'visuals-friendly' platforms has become rife and has even gained a level of social acceptance. Within is a reminder that books are more than just covers."

Within will be released on our Bandcamp page on May 14th and on all other major streaming and download platforms on May 28th.  Video Premiere details to be announced!

Leaether Strip and NOW - Destroyed By Ma

Following the success of 2020's "A Heart So Divine (for Kurt)", our Gary & Claus Larsen of Leaether Strip have teamed up again to bring you "Destroyed by Madness".  This is a return to the harder sound for which Leaether Strip and to a lesser extent Nature of Wires are known.  There is a full length version (Parental Advisory) and a shorter radio edit suitable for broadcast on the BBC :-)

Destroyed by Madness is available now on Leaether Strip's Bandcamp page and also on all major streaming & download platforms.  The song entered the German Alternative Charts at number 9 on 26th April and rose to number 3 the following week!

Nature of Wires was chosen to be BBC Introducing Artist of the Week from April 26th 2021.

 

Andrew Marston of BBC Hereford and Worcester invited Gary onto his show on April 24th, to discuss remixes, Germany and more.  Click on the image to listen the programme - Gary's bit is at 3:11:40.

 

As part of the show's Collaborator Generator feature, Gary was introduced to Andy & Scott of Badeye, from Redditch, with a view to creating Gary's 100th remix, the challenge being to come up with something ready for broadcast on May 1st.  The remix of 'Hold Me Now' was duly completed and you can hear it here (2:30:45). Plans to officially release it are being discussed, so watch this space for more details.

Nature of Wires - Its a Tragedy - cover

'It's a Tragedy' is the latest song written by Gary and Lady bNOW and is inspired by the shocking murder of Sarah Everard in London https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56384600

A real treat for EBM fans!  The Leaether Strip remix of "Through Someone Else's Eyes" is now available on Bandcamp and all major streaming and download platforms.

The Danish genius Claus Larsen has combined Madil's soaring vocals with some good, old-fashioned EBM stompiness and it works brilliantly, as you'd expect from such an experienced and revered exponent of the EBM art.  This is the third remix which Claus has created for Nature of Wires, the other two being Human Nature, from the 2019 Reborn EP and Madame Serena (which is our most streamed song on Spotify), from the 2019 Modus album.  Conversely, in 2016 our Gary did a great remix of Leaether Strip's Into It's Eyes, which is the theme song for Meathook Massacre II and which is included on Leaether Strip's 50 album.

Through Someone Else's Eyes 800px.jpg

"Through Someone Else's Eyes", by Nature of Wires ft Madil Hardis is now available on Bandcamp and all major streaming and download platforms.  We've even made a video for it, which you can see here.

This epic song combines powerful electronic elements with ethereal vocals. It describes an out-of-body experience - like a ghost on the threshold between two worlds. You’re lost, trying to hold on to what you knew to be true and real. Clinging to someone else’s life, you live through someone else’s eyes.

Some of you will be familiar with Madil Hardis, as she sang on Wild Eyes by Ashbury Heights, which was released in December 2020.  As well as being a phenomenal singer, Madil is also an accomplished film director.

And Some Will Say 250px.jpg

What if you could write a song for your own funeral? Or rather, if you could, why wouldn't you?

Montage Collective's 'And Some Will Say' is that song and was originally written as the closing track for the Interstitial album. The sentiment is clear, people will always have their own opinions and will screen their own bio-pics.

The cover art reflects this concept. "Screen" is by Australian artist Alex Frayne (http://fusionjazzer.com and http://instagram.com/alex.frayne).

When it's said and done, no matter what we wish, everyone will make up their own mind. However, hopefully someone will play Bolan's "Cosmic Dancer". The incredible remix by Nature of Wires transforms the original laid-back melodies into an anthemic blast of unbridled attitude.

Release date was 21st April 2021.  Click on the image to jump to Montage Collective's Bandcamp page.
