about

“Surrender to Summer” was conceived at the end of Martin Moog’s university career, where he studied Popular Music. Growing increasingly frustrated with high end production that many of his projects demanded, and developing a new fascination with distortion and noise, Moog began piling the effects upon his tracks, layering vocals, instruments and percussion under digital distortion and reverb.

With the development of hypnagogic pop (n.b. a Wire Magazine creation) in recent years, where pure pop is refashioned into a psychedelic haze of processing and obscurity – usually by twenty-something boys in tight trousers – many moments in the EP reflect this new trend in lo-fi electronic production, without ever aping them. Truly, the EP is about Edinburgh in the May sun, throwing your school books into the sink and lying in the park with a few bottles of Good Times ale.

The EP comes with a full set of remixes by such luminaries as FOUND, Jonnie Common, Fieldhead and Fox Gut Daata.
