Long Range

Orbital sibling Phil's new project

It came as something of a surprise to hit January with a record in the stereo from an unknown group named Long Range that spurs uncanny déjà vu with the digital necromancy of Orbital’s ‘The Girl With The Sun In Her Head’ and ‘Are We Here?’ – tracks which proved machines did indeed dream, seemingly of crumbling silicon edifices and sunset poignancy. The fact that Long Range boasts a Hartnoll amongst its ranks seems something of a done deal: with the P in question being that of Phil alongside new recording partner Nick Smith.
