Today’s Untz & Indie: Tough Love (Aril Brikha Remix) / Sailor & I
So I have a full plate of music this weekend with Com Truise and crew and The String Cheese Incident. I am short on time today, but we at least wanted to get out our thrice weekly dose of music over here at TheUntzAndTheIndie corporate office (that’s a joke).
So Sailor & I eh? Stockholm band Sailor & I have carved a niche for themselves with their thematic indie music. ‘Tough Love’ is an extremely catchy and emotional tune. It also gets the full on treatment from Aril Brikha.
He’s an Iranian who emigrated to Sweden at a young age. In his early teens he developed an interest in electronic music – artists such as Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Jean Michel Jarre. Brikha obtained an Atari and started to use a sequencer and, after initially emulating the music of others, he began composing. Friends who heard his material told him it was ‘Detroit techno’. Brikha had no idea what that was… gotta love it. #untz & indie/tom
