Listen as Tim Hecker disintegrates “Savage” from Majical Cloudz

The dour pop duo from Montreal celebrate their biggest tour yet with a stirring remix.

- Jun 30, 2014

Touring with Lorde, deep into the construction of a new album...Majical Cloudz aren't letting any of their momentum coming off last year's Impersonator go to waste. It's true! Please believe me! Devon Welsh told Billboard about their plans for a follow-up LP and how stoked he and Matthew Otto are to play huge shows with a kindred live performer. Plus, they dropped off a remix of their track "Savage" by Montreal drone artist Tim Hecker (Majical Cloudz do not mention if their show will top Hecker's brilliant NXNE gig.)

The original single's cover art fits Tim Hecker's craft: plumes of crackling drone fissure and spark against contact from the sound of sawing, like the gases of a sunset being carved without direction. And with an unexpectedly percussive arpeggio zooming under the entire track, it seems Hecker is newly flirting with an immediate propulsion. Good looks.

Majical Cloudz's Impersonator is out now via Matador.
