Something that started as a crazy idea in a text message, got followed by a 6 second melody written while the band was on the road supporting 80’s legend OMD, and eventually morphed into a unique multi-cultural adventure and fruitful collaboration with the renowned international railway company itself: “Thalys”, symbolised worldwide by its famous high-speed burgundy red trains…
You are fond of vintage keyboards, you got seduced last year by Belgium’s METROLAND’s successful “Mind The Gap” album and you have LP’s by KRAFTWERK, TELEX and KOMPUTER in your music collection? Then, dear ladies and gentlemen, get seated for a new exciting sonic journey across Europe with METROLAND who bring us to the next level with their trademark sound made of carrying layers of melodic synths, robotic vocals and analogue drum machines.
Next to the vinyl version of the “Thalys” EP (available here) the digital version gets released in 3 different language versions with a French version for the “Paris” edition, a German version for the “Düsseldorf” edition and a “London” edition in English for the rest of the world… You can only find these 3 versions on Alfa Matrix’s official Bandcamp machine alfamatrix.bandcamp.com as iTunes and other download stores will only have the download as allocated to the territory.
This EP is only available as a download via Bandcamp (see player below).
