Ride release new single "Pulsar"

Ride have shared their new single “Pulsar”. The band is Currently touring their current release Weather Diaries (out now on Wichita Recordings). Built around a central pulsing rhythm, and signature walls of swooping, fuzzed out guitars, “Pulsar” sees Ride reunited once again with Erol Alkan, the DJ, producer and remixer who produced Weather Diaries.

Ride’s Loz Colbert on “Pulsar”:

“‘Pulsar’ reimagines old organ samples, transmissions from space, effects, heavy beats and pulsing chords. The song title tips its head to the 60’s instrumental ‘Telstar’ in name and theme; and the idea was to come up with some kind of ‘space anthem’ about light, existence, travel and return. The band all contributed to make the song what it is, and it all really came together in the studio when we worked with Erol Alkan once again, following on from the success of the Weather Diaries sessions.”

Weather Diaries, sees the band with mixer Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers) who mixed their 1990 album Nowhere and produced it’s follow up Going Blank Again. It also sees Ride once again working with Wichita Records’ Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with the band during their early years on Creation Records.
