Twin Sun share bouncing remix of Zoot Woman's 'Where Is The Man'
Following on from the release of their highly-praised singles ‘Lilac Light’, ‘Real Life’ and ‘Jump Back’, which have all received airplay on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 show, Radio X, and BBC Introducing, fast-rising production duo Twin Sun have now returned with their biggest offering to date, the official remix of Zoot Woman’s latest single ‘Where Is The Man’.
Continuing their flair for bright and uplifting electro-pop, this new rework takes the glittering feel of the original release and adds a truly euphoric aesthetic that showcases why so many have been talking about the pair these last few years. Speaking about their new offering,
Twin Sun said, "We've both been big fans of Zoot Woman since their first two albums on Wall Of Sound. When we first heard "Where Is The Man" we both loved it and were dying to have a go at reworking it. Lockdown was in full flow by the time we finished our remix but with the help of Zoom we crammed all our ideas into it and were over the moon when Zoot Woman told us they wanted to make it a single!"
Twin Sun are Jamie Willcox, the former lead guitarist with Pure Reason Revolution, and Pete Wheeler, a notable DJ and club promoter of CUBED (Mixmag Clubs Of The Year 2013) . Since forming in 2015, their early live sets saw them supporting Maribou State, Bondax and The Blockheads before taking to festival stages with a full band, which included frontwoman Jennifer Stearnes of Saltwater Sun and Alex Woodward of Black Honey on drums, at Glastonbury, Penn Fest, Are You Listening?, and Readipop Festival.
Zoot Woman will return with their seventh studio album ‘Maxidrama’ later this year. The self-reflective first single ‘Where Is The Man’ sets the pace. As Johnny Blake sings, “paranoia getting deep” we get a hint of the lyrical and creative direction.
“The songwriting delves into every emotion” explains Blake. “There are some bright moments and some very dark ones too. The album title ‘Maxidrama’ represents these extremities. The year 2020 has made us question a lot of things.”
A collection of emotionally resonant songs produced in an avant-pop style, ‘Maxidrama’ remains unique to Zoot Woman’s contemporary signature sound, yet recalls the exacting synths of Kraftwerk and evokes an elegance and artistry reminiscent of the 80s new wave acts and classic groups like Roxy Music.
