Blown in by Reykjavik’s icy winds and guided by the bewitching Northern Lights, Iceland’s own Bardi Johannsson announces the details of the long-awaited new Bang Gang album. Entitled “The Wolves Are Whispering” and out in the U.S. on May 19th, this album is Bang Gang’s first in over 7 years. The album features guest vocals by Helen Marnie (Ladytron), Keren Ann (Lady & Bird), Jofridur Akadottir (Samaris, Pascal Pinon) and Bloodgroup. Press here to listen to the album’s soaring and melodic lead single “Out Of Horizon”, and stream the single’s Daniel Hunt/Ladytron remix, below. The remix is available as a free download.
Though it’s been nearly a decade since the last Bang Gang record, Ghosts From The Past, the brooding Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson has kept busy with multiple projects. His recent collaborations include the electro-pop duo Starwalker with Jean-Benoît Dunckel of Air and Lady and Bird with French songstress Keren Ann. Johannsson has also scored numerous films and documentaries including David Guy Levy’s Would You Rather (with Daniel Hunt), and the French success De Toutes Nos Forces, directed by Nils Tavernier.
