STRFKR: Limited Edition
STRFKR, now known by some earthlings as Skeletron, has released a remix of "Golden Light,” a song from February’s Miracle Mile. You can buy the track on a limited edition 12” vinyl at one of their shows, or just stream it on SoundCloud: Golden Light (Skeletron Remix)
"Golden Light," the penultimate song on their third album, is an ethereal meditation on nothingness and infinity. Why do we love Starfucker? Their music cozies up in the space between what's tangible and what's imagined. Oh, and it's really fun for dancing. That’s important, too.
"Golden Light" (the Skeletron remix) samples Alan Watt's speech on the topic of nothingness: he speaks about our cosmic insignificance and the gradual dissipation of the universe. Wow, bummer, right? Wrong. The philosopher chuckles and tells us to cheer up right before the band fades out. Man, Watts, you’re really something. (He’s also been sampled on a bunch of other STRFKR tracks.)
STRFKR has been on the road all year for the Miracle Mile tour, and they aren't stopping anytime soon.
Check out their latest music video, released August 20, for their song "While I'm Alive." Like much of their music, the video plays like a vision. It’s beautiful, sad, and the old guy is played by a guy named Duane.
Enjoy these starry tidbits and have safe travels through the universe. Don't forget to keep your eyes on that STRFKR.
