Bruno Pronsato presents his new project, Archangel - his first solo release in 2 years.
"Over the course of our lives, I've found it helps to identify with some gesture in history or pop culture to make one's actions seem somehow relevant. My pop-historical spirit animal, so to speak, has always been Gary Numan in this snapshot of studio toil. I still feel that the sleek, mechanical sex appeal of 'Metal' is seductive, so, for the A-side, I decided to take the basics from Numan's track (bass line, synth) and transform them into my darker, drone driven style. Wave of nostalgia - 20 again, but with groomed hair and a room full of speakers I couldn't afford then.
On the b-side, 'Momentum of the Farce' strikes a different chord. I look at it as a contribution to post EDM - whatever that means. While making it, I imagined myself playing live to 20 people - the 20 people who appreciate a sunrise at the party but simultaneously enjoy the thought of going home. Though this version differs from the one on the album, the two still share a touch of sadness and, say, optimism - like sunlight glancing off the chrome wreckage of fast cars."

The Archangel LP, The Bedroom Slant will be released on Foom in the new year.
