Art rock band S.C.U.M and Simeon, leader of veteran experimental project Silver Apples, now have more in common than being chosen by Portishead for ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festivals. Simeon appears to share Portishead’s taste for the rising London five-piece, because Silver Apples has remixed S.C.U.M’s track “Amber Hands”.
Silver Apples take the emphasis off the crunchy guitar lead for their version, and insert a litter of well-timed sound effects. The guitar rock suddenly shows itself halfway through and does not let up. Check it out for yourself below; at the very least it can almost pass for a new Silver Apples recording.
