A Flock Of Seagulls
Taken from 2021's "String Theory" album, "Remember David" finally gets it's debut single release!
Originally released on "A Flock Of Seagulls" third studio album "The Story of a Young Heart" in 1984, "Remember David" surprisingly has never had a single release.. until now! Included on the 2021 "Ascension" follow up "String Theory", which sees the band joined by the Prague Philharmonic orchestra to re-imagine their much loved hits.
The release features an epic Extended Orchestral version, clocking in at just shy of 7min long! There is also a remix from Canada based Paragon Cause who's remix adds a subtle darker tone to the original. Incorporating the duo's influences of 80's cold wave, Goth and Shoegaze bands. The thick pulsating synth lead and delayed guitar stabs echo into the ether, whilst the weighty Kick and snare rolls drive the beat forward.
A Flock Of Seagulls may well be known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as much as their hit single "I Ran". A Flock Of Seagulls were one of prime movers in the 80's new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new romantic movement. Hairdresser Mike Score (lead vocals, keyboards) formed A Flock Of Seagulls with his
brother Ali (drums) and fellow hairdresser Frank Maudsley (bass) in 1980, adding guitarist Paul Reynolds several months later.. "Telecommunication" became an underground hit in Euro-disco and new wave clubs. The band signed a major-label contract with Jive by the end of the year, and their eponymous debut album appeared in the spring of 1982. "I Ran (So Far Away)" was released as the first single from the album, and MTV quickly picked up on its icily attractive video, which featured long shots of Mike Score and his distinctive, cascading hair. The single climbed into the American Top Ten, taking the album along with it. In the UK, "I Ran" didn't make the Top 40, but "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" reached number ten later that year; in America, that single became a Top 40 hit in 1983, after "Space Age Love Song" peaked at number 30. "Wishing" was taken from the group's second album "Listen" in 1983. The band released 1984's "The Story of A Young Heart" which fielded the hit "The More You Live, The More You Love".
