Sir Winston unveils hypnotic new single ‘Perfectly Numb', fuelling the indie-sleaze resurgence, a second taste of debut EP.
Sir Winston, the electronic maverick, known for his captivating blend of indie-sleaze and infectious dance beats, is back with a new single, ‘Perfectly Numb.’ The anticipated track serves as the second tantalizing preview of his forthcoming EP, 'Démons à Combattre,' slated for release later this year. Building on the success of his previous single, 'Sex in Paris,' Sir Winston continues to captivate listeners with his unique sonic vision.
The legendary star explained, “Perfectly numb is a state of self-induced deluded reality. A moment where you’re between worlds, unable to function or react. Alone in a strange but content peace. Beyond all limits – at a point of no immediate return.”
The single envelops listeners in an electro-hazy dance-floor soundscape that evokes the spirit of 2010’s indie-sleaze peak, drawing inspiration from acclaimed acts such as LCD Soundsystem and MGMT, with a hint of darker rock elements - à la Nine Inch Nails, and the upbeat drive of classic New Order.
Recorded at Transmitter Studios in Brooklyn, New York, 'Perfectly Numb' was brought to life by Sir Winston and his longtime collaborator and fellow producer, Abe Seiferth (RAC, Car Seat Headrest, Yeasayer).
The artist continued, “Everything flowed and ran like a dream making Perfectly Numb. We had found the new sound we were after. Completing it was total joy - I left the studio that day beaming. I love the arpeggiated synth riff – the track grew from that riff and the bass line. Dropping guitar solos over the track was so much fun. I’d been talking about the state of being “Perfectly Numb” with a friend the night before, and when the synth part was looping in the studio I yelled “this is making me perfectly numb” – Booooooom!”
Sir Winston is a prolific and diverse artist who thrives on the affinity between music and fashion. His music has been used in large-scale fashion campaigns including NIKE, VOGUE, Victoria’s Secret & Maybelline.
