Pnau – ‘Wild Strawberries’
This Sydney based electronic duo have been around for a few years now. We’ve mentioned them several times in other posts but this is the first that they have come with new material since this blog started. Pnau is Nick Littlemore and Pete Mayes, both have been busy with side projects Teenager (with Pip Brown of Ladyhawke) and The Hate Game respectively as well as producing for other bands.
The famous anecdote they are most known for is when their 1999 album Sambanova was pulled from store shelves for uncleared samples one week before they won an Aria award, preventing anyone interested in buying. It was re-released through a bigger label in 2000 and in 2003 they released their follow up Again.
I am unsure of what the upcoming album will be called but it will be out in November and has been in the works for two years and was co produced by Sam Littlemore and DJ Feadz of Uffie fame.
