Standish/Carlyon are Conrad Standish (bass/vocals) and Tom Carlyon (guitar/electronics). Good band name. Easy to google. Take note kids. So I was down at the New Museum of contemporary art in the lower east side, NYC the other day. Yeah you read right – cool huh. And I was in both shock and awe at the number of sleazy moustaches on the faces of ridiculously good-looking people. If there was a soundtrack for what I witnessed it would have to be ‘Nono/Yoyo’. So what I’m saying is this track is so forward thinking, it’s both seedy and beautiful at the same time.
‘Nono/Yoyo’ is taken from Deleted Scenes, the new record being released in Australia by Chapter Music on Friday, 17th May with a simultaneous US release on New York label Felte. We are fast-tracking it for the US – ha! They played ATP recently and have a show at the Gasometer this Friday with Roland Tings and Perfume Production so be there or be a clean-shaven square.
