TUNE Wozniak - Perihelion (edit)
Out on 3 March Perihelion is the first single from Wozniak's forthcoming debut album, Courage Reels.
Perihelion takes the band’s proclivity for layering warped sonic structures to new heights.
Named for an astronomical term, space has been a definite influence on the track. Vast reverbs ring out over a sullen lunar landscape, while ethereal vocals drift like a lost astronaut, communicating in vain with a home base that is long gone, before the song spins to its conclusion, flaring and echoing like a supernova before fading into silence.
There is another cosmic dimension to Perihelion – it is a tribute of sorts to David Bowie. Recorded soon after the iconic artist’s death in January 2016, the lyrics were inspired by both Space Oddity and its source material, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
