Gazelle Twin has recorded a Wire cover version for new EP 'Mammal'.
Real name Elizabeth Walling, the Gazelle Twin moniker has been placed on some remarkably fluid creativity. Continuing skipping between styles, genres the songwriter has won acclaim from high quarters – even being included on a viral clip for Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'.
New EP 'Mammal' continues her evolution. Due for release on January 28th, the material is seemingly inspired by quite direct, bracing artists – in the press we've been supplied, Gazelle Twin name checks both John Carpenter and Death Grips.
In short, Walling explains, the material focusses on "the alienation of human physical form" – no something you're going to hear from the majority of artists, it's fair to say.
Alongside original material, Gazelle Twin has recorded a version of Wire's 1978 track 'Heartbeat' which was seemingly approved by Colin Newman himself before its inclusion.
Matched to this, the songwriter has hand picked a number of special remixes. Clint Mansell has stepped in to remix Gazelle Twin, with the likes of Kuedo, Renaissance Man and Alexander III all taking it in turns to re-work the artist's material.
No sound clips as yet, but 'Mammal' does sound like another exciting step forward from a vital artist.
