The latest album from the Grammy nominated artists, ‘A Perfect Circle’ is a masterpiece of electronic music, says the award winning producer
The new album from Grammy nominated band A Perfect Circle is one of the most beautiful and compelling albums the genre has ever heard.
The album, released by independent label Warp in August, features the likes of the band’s trademark ‘sick’ electronic music style, as well as a massive music simulation software suite called ‘Music System’, which allows the player to play tracks and listen to them through a computer.
In a way, the album is a musical mash-up of everything that made the band famous: from its infectious electronic style to its distinctive vocal melodies.
The result is a album that transcends the confines of its genre, as it combines elements from electronic dance music with the more traditional genres of pop, jazz and pop rock.
‘A perfect circle’ was a song the group wrote in 2015 to mark the first anniversary of their 2016 debut album, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’.
It became a worldwide hit and went platinum, earning the band the Grammy for best electronic music album.
This time, the group decided to take it a step further.
‘We decided to do a proper remake of that song, and we just went with a different direction,’ producer Mark Mothersbaugh, who co-wrote the album, told News.
‘So I think it’s really special, it’s very rare to see this album that captures the essence of a particular genre, and it’s not a song you can just go and play with.
It’s a really unique album and a lot of the things you can play with it are really different and really interesting.’
‘A lot of our influences are electronic music like ’80s synth pop, electro house, and a little bit of classic rock,’ he said.
‘It’s not like an electronic version of something that was made decades ago.
We wanted to do something different, and there’s no other way to put it.’
The album is not only a tribute to the group’s fans, but also to the musicians who helped make it a success.
‘There’s a lot to love about this album,’ said Mothersbaugh.
‘I think it shows us a lot about the fans that have been listening for the past year or so, but it’s also a record that has a lot more to say about who the artists are and what it means to be a musician.
‘This is not just a tribute album to our fans, it is a record of who the artist is.
It is the best record ever made by an electronic musician, and I think that is what we are all so proud of.
‘People really have to take this seriously, we all have to think about the music we make as a collective.
This is not a band, this is not about one person, it has a collective vision that we share.
It has a shared vision, and that’s what makes it so special.’
