Premiere: Download Punks Jump Up’s New Single ‘Fairlight’

Having released three singles and 12 remixes last year you can’t blame Punks Jump Up for taking their foot off the gas in 2013. Well, their self-imposed hiatus ends today with free single to tide you over until the duo releases a slew of new original material throughout 2014.

The duo’s new single, ‘Fairlight‘, is a lot easier to pick apart than some of their more eccentric works, like ‘Blockhead‘ for example. It also comes in two distinct flavours, namely a video version which appears in spacey video directed & animated by Neal Coghlan and house-y-ier club version. The video version is arguably our favourite of the two as it throws you right in at the deep end with a swashbuckling start and the earlier introduction of a hooky vocoder.

The club version is no less impressive, though, but it does make you work a little harder as the hooks are desperse amongst 90s percussion and less flamboyant keys – evidently concentrating on the groove rather than impact.

The duo have understandably kept a low profile this year, choosing to concentrating on finishing new material. Apparently more new material will see the light of day next year in the shape of various singles & EPs, including collaborations with some incredibly talented artists, old and new.
