The Soft Moon vs John Foxx & The Maths

The track ‘Evidence’ was born naturally out of the two artists’ mutual appreciation for one another. Speaking with Artrocker magazine last year, Luis Vasquez from The Soft Moon had this to say of John Foxx’s influence on his own music: ‘Foxx’s Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do.’ With regard to the collaboration, John Foxx said, ‘The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It’s an absolute joy for us to work with them.’

‘Evidence’ will be released as a one-sided 7 inch single by Captured tracks on 26 June. It also features on the forthcoming Evidence mini-album by John Foxx & The Maths in early September.

The Shape Of Things

The second John Foxx And The Maths album, The Shape Of Things was recorded and mixed at Benge’s studio in London. Like the debut album Interplay, it’s the sound of analogue synthesizers and drum machines – and on one track, feedbacking guitars played by Foxx himself. Although there’s a raw edge to the likes of ‘Falling Down’ and ‘Talk’, this album is arguably more reflective and emotional than Interplay. Though not overtly auto-biographical, there’s a sense of looking back over a life and exploring feelings of loss over opportunities and lovers missed; possible futures that will remain unlived.

This limited edition release of the album is in hard-back deluxe artwork by Interplay designer Jonathan Barnbrook and includes a bonus CD of remixes.

It’s available exclusively through the OFFICIAL STORE

‘Talk’ from the new album, The Shape Of Things

John Foxx And The Maths : “The Shape Of Things”…

The follow-up to Interplay has now been completed – and will be available at the forthcoming live shows in October. The album, entitled The Shape Of Things, will be a limited edition special package (once again designed by Jonathan Barnbrook) accompanied by a bonus disc of remixes. The album is a lot rougher around the edges and more experimental than “Interplay” – with songs and stark, minimal sketches (such as ‘Talk’) mixed in with some instrumental interludes. All of the tracks were recorded at Benge’s studio in London, so there’s plenty more of that lost analogue technology creating new shapes…

Disc One
01. Spirus
02. Rear-View Mirror
03. Talk
