Up next on Our Starry Universe, the debut single from Brooklyn duo Birds Of Pandæmonium - Days Go By. A Bleary-eyed piece of Optimistic Astral Shoegaze, DGB is as if Echo & The Bunnymen made a record produced by Dan Hartman and that in turn was remixed by the late Andrew Weatherall (RIP)
Remixing duties here fall to Bryan Mette (WhateverWhatever) who brings a 10 minute Moroder-tinged Maximal Cosmic Disco workout along with a more minimal late night Belgian Beat-esque dub.
“Days go by, an inevitable & unavoidable aspect of life,” Says Hazy James, 1/2 of BOP. “We have a choice in every moment to move in a positive or a negative direction. For me, ego drove a lot of the direction negative and it took years to arrive at the moment when I realized. This song is about that moment of realization and the subsequent destruction of ego. It’s new chapter and pure emotion. It’s an inner call to love without expectation. It’s a conscious choice to move toward the positive regardless of the obstacle one may face. It’s a mantra to truly make each day better, for yourself and for everyone in your orbit.”
