Children Collide: 'We Are Amphibious'

One of the very first bands that we blogged when we started out, Children Collide has since picked up a new drummer, new management, new label and put out a new EP titled Glass Mountain Liars. The lead track is a newly recorded ‘We Are Amphibious’ which has been released as a B-Side to their independently released We Three, Brave and True, tho I’m not sure which three they were referring to when they came up with that title.

I’m always interested in reworkings of old tracks for the purposes of a new release. It doesn’t always work out but they’ve got it right this time, with the more prominent guitar overdubs giving the song the right groove and does reflect how exciting they can be live. To show you what I meant, I’ve put the old version up below. Let me know what you think.

    I interviewed Jonny Collide a while back, and he was one of the funniest dudes I’ve ever talked to.
    He labelled his sound as “deep house and progressive trance”,
    which is clearly exactly what CC are all about
    Personally I like the old EP’s tones more, but We Are Amphibious (what a title!) sounds better in widescreen.

    And so, Jonno hath spoken

    Their live show is worth a mention too. I saw them for the first time just recently and was relatively impressed. It’s high energy and grungy… just what I like. ‘ Cannibal’ is another wicked song though live, not for the sober.
