We’re proud to release ”Death in the Streets Tonight” from the Swedish dream pop duo Spaceland – a beautiful melancholic indie gem that makes you want to cry, dance and smile at the same time. The song is about obsession and an idea of love, about indulging in a fixation and the strong feelings it evokes but also about the fear of not existing anymore.
”Death in the Streets Tonight” is recorded by the band on the island of Gotland and features drums recorded with only one microphone, a synth, bass, vocals and tambourine. The idea was to handle the synth like an electric guitar, and to experiment with making a simple drum recording to be able to handle the whole sound of the drum kit. From that simplicity, something greater could be created.
