The Algorithm releases new single

The Algorithm Neotokyo

This happens quite a lot: we write a big feature about something, and then some news drops that sort of invalidates what we just wrote.

Yesterday we dropped a big feature on Basick Records, who have a full eight new releases lined up for this year. Amongst impending cuts from new boys Murdock and the long-silent A Dark Orbit , Basick also revealed that The Algorithm – AKA Rémi Gallego – would be amongst that number. It’s somewhat surprising, as it’s less than a year since his second album OCTOPUS4 was released, but you’ll not find us complaining.

In fact, it was only last week that a live video of OCTOPUS4 track “Will_Smith“, filmed at Euroblast 2014, dropped just before The Algorithm’s hectic spring live schedule kicks off, but said Algo-update today revealed a brand new track called “Neotokyo“:

It’s a might darker than we’re used to. The glitchy elements are in abundance as ever, but the overall tone is downtuned and evil. Elements phase in and out over a brooding, bassy synth. It’s like we’re getting a glimpse at a city of the future – one rife with all the seedier elements of humanity – and it’s not very nice at all.

It harkens back to last September’s single release of “Terminal“, which was similarly futuristic and murky, with various post-y elements. The likelihood that these two are stylistically related is high, and we hope both will be expanded upon in The Algorithm’s forthcoming release.

Going back to that touring schedule, here’s a current list of all forthcoming dates for the band. Get out and see them if you can.
