The second single ‘No Words’ from their upcoming album ‘Maria’ by the electronic duo Pale Blue, features remixes by DJ Tennis and Perel.

The launch of their Pale Blue project in 2015, which unveiled a series of critically acclaimed releases via Simonetti‘s 2MR imprint, only elevated further the rich and storied careers of Silver Hands‘ Elizabeth Wight and Italians Do It Better‘s Mike Simonetti within the electronic genre and beyond. These accolades include Pitchfork, FACT, and Resident Advisor, to name a few. After giving fans a sneak peek at their next Crosstown Rebels album, ‘Maria’ which is set to drop on the label later this year, the duo is back to kick off March with the second song from the record, ‘No Words’ which is accompanied by remixes from DJ Tennis and Perel.

The majority of the tracks on the duo’s upcoming album project, as well as the upcoming single ‘No Words’ were constructed using the exact synthesizers used to make Jaydee‘s legendary 1993 hit, Plastic Dreams according to Simonetti, who explains the background to the record:

A long time ago, maybe twelve years, I answered a Craigslist ad of a person selling some synthesizers, and when I got to the house to buy them, it was Jaydee of ‘Plastic Dreams’ fame. I ended up buying the two synths he recorded ‘Plastic Dreams’ on, and his custom presets were still set up. I use his synths all the time and used them on almost every song on ‘Maria’. On ‘No Words’ especially, I used the ‘Plastic Dreams’ sound from his actual synth.

– Mike Simonetti

‘No Words’ is a catchy and fascinating production that ebbs and flows during its close to five-minute duration with ease, expressing the playful character Simonetti alludes. It is led by an alluring bassline and highlighted by Wight’s endearing vocals, which flutter among the mix. The remix by Life and Death head honcho DJ Tennis follows, taking a foggy yet captivating turn as sharp organic percussion and captivating melodies develop around the vocals and travel between bright and dark textures.

Perel, a DJ and producer, vocalist, and DFA Records favorite, is featured on the record’s B-side and takes a cosmic dive through spacey synths, skittering bleeps and pops, and tough kicks in her production. In her ‘Dub Version’ she then warps and distorts the vocals and puts the focus on the constantly evolving electronics.
