Ride, who are currently touring critically acclaimed album ‘Weather Diaries’ – via Wichita Recordings – unveil hypnotic new single ‘Pulsar’ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Built on a mesmerizing beat, and signature walls of swooping, fuzzed out guitars, ‘Pulsar’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League playlist – sees Ride reunited once again with Erol Alkan, the legendary DJ, producer and remixer who produced ‘Weather Diaries’.
Packed with all the classic elements that made Ride one of the defining bands of the early ‘90s, ‘Weather Diaries’ – which ended the band’s 20-year hiatus – was greeted by a raft of critical and fan acclaim on its release in June 2017.
It reunited the band with mixer Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers), who mixed their seminal 1990 album ‘Nowhere’ and produced its follow up ‘Going Blank Again’.
Ride – Andy Bell, Laurence Colbert, Mark Gardener and Steve Queralt – also once again work with Wichita Records’ Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with the band during their early years on Creation Records.
Following on from a string of lauded summer shows including Latitude, Glastonbury, Green Man and Pitchfork Festival in Paris, the rejuvenated Ride also play seven UK tour dates in November.
