Pnau has been on a hot streak. A purple (haze) patch. The psychedelic Aussie electronic act scored a U.K. No. 1 with their 2012 Elton John remix album, Good Morning to the Night. Their followup, Changa, dropped last year and earned the trio (Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and freshly-confirmed band member Sam Littlemore) a career high No. 11 on the Australian albums chart.
The lead tracks from it, “Chameleon” and “Go Bang,” are multi-platinum hits. The former won the Sydney outfit an ARIA Award, for beet dance release; the latter hit No. 5 on the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart.
The good times roll on with the release today their latest single, “Changa” (etcetc) which is accompanied by a video shot filmed in Los Angeles plus five new remixes.
Directed by Ben Kutsko, “Changa” is a full-on trip which, like its two predecessors, follows the colorful journey the conscious and unconscious world DMT. Directed by Ben Kutsko from Miniac Films and starring vocalist Kira Divine, the video is right out the mind Pnau’s Nick Littlemore.
Pnau are currently in the U.S. putting the finishing touches to a new album. They’ll return to Australia in July to headline the sold-out Splendour In The Grass festival. Check out the “Changa” clip below.
