New York electro duo Beautiful Small Machines know their Philip K. Dick, one of science fictions darkest writers. Their new single Simple Joys is inspired by his classic book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the novel that inspired the Blade Runner movie. Bree Sharp has the innocent voice and Don DiLego has the sounds. The pain and uncertainties of a world full of replicants while the protagonists are looking for simple joys is caught in a pastoral electronic angst, with Simon Le Bon (Duran Duran) lending a hand with the vocals.
Simple Joys is part of a digital EP. The track is available in three different mixes, with So Long 2 U serving as a virtual b-side. Buy Simple Joy from iTunes. A fourth mix of Simple Joy is available for free..
