After longtime friendship they have come to this split single, on one side of which is track by Pia Fraus, produced by Ulrich Schnauss and other side has track by Ulrich Schnauss produced by Pia Fraus. Single is mastered at legendary Abbey Road Studio in London by Steve Rooke (who’s portfolio is full of our favorite indie albums).
Pia Fraus is the best estonian shoegaze group and has gathered fandom around the world. Their last album After Summer was produced by Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub). You can call Ulrich Schnauss a star of electronic shoegaze scene. German artist and Estonian band became friends at their gig in London. They have toured together in Estonia and now they have come to this record. Mute the Birds was one of critically acclaimed tracks from last album, but now you get new ulrichschnaussed version. Beautiful song gets much more lush epicness known from Schnauss music. Ships Will Sail can be called new hit from Schnauss. Pia Fraus tops the typical lush syntheticness with more natural sounds, walls of guitars and some other pleasant sounds.
