Spacey good times are to be had whenever The Octopus Project drop a new song. Fortunately, today just happens to be a release day for a new track from the band! “Pedro Yang” appears on the band’s forthcoming new album, Memory Mirror, which arrives April 7th via Robot High School. Check out “Pedro Yang” via Gold Flake Paint below.

Fun fact about “Pedro Yang”: The stuttering keyboard pads on “Pedro Yang” came from a previous, failed synth composition – when it was arbitrarily chopped up and rearranged, the new rhythms that emerged suggested a slow-motion float that the song came to embody.
