Latvian indie rock band Carnival Youth has just published “Phantom Planet” – the first single from their upcoming third album “Good Luck” which is set for release in August 16th.
“Phantom Planet was one of the last songs that came together for the record. We felt that the verse had this darkish groovy hip-hop vibe, so the lyrics came up about the inner world the one we always feel but aren’t always in control of – and the way how it’s in contrast with the other world – the everyday normal side of us. A dialogue like one Dale Cooper’s character has in Twin Peaks. But it’s not a fight, it’s cohabitation” tells Emils Kaupers of Carnival Youth.
The new album “Good Luck” was recorded last summer in Red Bull Studios in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It’s produced by the band’s long-time collaborator Gatis Zakis and mixed by the Grammy winning producer Nicolas Verhnes, who has previously worked with Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors, Wild Nothing, The War on Drugs and others. Master was done by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in NYC and his work includes artists like The National, MGMT, Interpol and Arcade Fire. The new album consists of 12 songs and the release of it will be celebrated with the band’s most excessive tour so far which will start in autumn.
