A creative force to be reckoned with, Belgian electronic outfit GOOSE unleash their new single ‘What You Need’ along with remixes from Germanelectropowerhouse Digitalism and fellow Belgian Mumbai Science, as well as visuals directed by Raf Simons and Dior long-term collaborator Willy Vanderperre, set for release via Believe Digital and Safari Records on 18th November.
The single is the title-track from their upcoming new album, which went straight to number one in Belgium and was recorded in LA with Ariel Pink, Air and Beck writer and arranger Jason Falkner, whoalso contributes guitars, synths and piano on several tracks.
Following up on the success of their internationally acclaimed albums, the NME-approved ‘Bring It On’ released on Fatboy Slim’s Skint Records, the two-time Music Industry Awards winner ‘Synrise’ released on seminal Berlin label !K7 and The Guardian-approved ‘Control Control Control’ - GOOSE have been at the forefront of the Flemish electronic music scene alongside Soulwax, Aeroplane and The Magician for the past ten years.
Born from the creative minds of singer and keyboard player Mickael Karkousse, guitarist Dave Martijn, bassist Tom Coghe and drummer Bert Libeert, GOOSE are known for their sleek aesthetic - from creating magazines featuring interviews with their friends and peers including Soulwax, Raf Simons and Pink Floyd’s sleeve artist Storm Thorgerson - torunning multimedia installations. The multidisclipinary band have also lent their hand to remixes for top artists such Daft Punk, Scissor Sisters and White Lies
‘What You Need’ is GOOSE most compelling single so far - the first taste of the band’s upcoming new album in the pipeline for next Spring - epitomizes the unique sound and intensely creative nature that makes them one if the most exciting names coming out of Belgium in the last ten years.
