Take a long and cosmic journey with TOUR TAPE

Just three months after releasing their self-titled pseudo-debut, Shirley and the Pyramids are back with a two-track teaser.

TOUR TAPE is largely instrumental and, despite having just two songs, clocks in at more than 25 minutes long.

Soon, the marathon song floats into another sonic landscape, almost like a film score. This interlude feels like you’re in a space ship, floating through far-away galaxies.

Then, the track turns quick. It has more of a pop feel, but maybe pop in space – like you’ve come out the other side of the wormhole.

That strangely happy tone is continued on the next track, “OLD FATE.” It’s a dizzying song, with its laser sounds and its futuristic 70s vibe. But it most certainly plasters a smile on your face.

What will Shirley and the Pyramids think up next? We asked them – read the exclusive interview here.
