We cannot wait to release ‘Tomorrow’s Shore’, the new EP from Ride due out, tomorrow! , This new four track EP. Kicking off with recent single Pulsar, the four track EP is made up of new songs Keep It Surreal, Cold Water People and Catch You Dreaming. Apocalyptic closer Catch You Dreaming is a defiantly reflective, blissed out, yet wistful six minute zero gravity swirl. The track showcases yet another side to the reborn and rejuvenated Ride, who last summer returned with their first new music in twenty years.

Ride unveiled a brand new song due for release on a new 12″ vinyl. Not featured on their highly acclaimed recent album, Weather Diaries , “Pulsar” is built around a central pulsing rhythm and the band’s signature wall of swooping, fuzzed out guitars. It was recorded with Erol Alkan, the legendary DJ, producer and remixer who produced the band’s latest album. Loz had this to say about their brand new song: “Pulsar re-imagines old organ samples, transmissions from space, effects, heavy beats and pulsing chords. The song title tips its head to the 60’s instrumental ’Telstar’ in name and theme; and the idea was to come up with some kind of ‘space anthem’ about light, existence, travel and return. The band all contributed to make the song what it is, and it all really came together in the studio when we worked with Erol Alkan once again, following on from the success of the ‘Weather Diaries’ sessions.”

You can also hear ‘Pulsar’ AND ‘Catch You Dreaming’ right now.

Said Andy Bell of this new song and the EP…“Catch You Dreaming” is written from the perspective of being one of the last two people alive, watching as the Universe is ending. The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise. Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets. ” The song itself was intended to be a part of “Weather Diaries”, and recording started during the sessions in Autumn 2016. But we never managed to record a definitive version at the time and decided to come back to it later as part of a follow up EP, which is now finished, and titled “Tomorrow’s Shore”. The EP was made with an identical process to “Weather Diaries” and we see it as very much tied to the album. ”
