Led by the icy vocals of Miss Sophie, "Weird" slinks and shimmies as if sneaking through a dark alley, its steady drum beat and synthesized arpeggiations cautiously leading the way. The song itself is appealingly retro, as if time traveling from the post-punk '80s, but filtered though recent cosmic excursions. In fact, Mohear mastermind DJ Enne has played alongside the Italian cosmic pioneers Baldelli and Beppe Loda back in 1983 and one can certainly hear some of these influences in this production. Italian producer Brioski supplies a pair of remixes, with the first riding on a synthetic pulse accented by handy percussion flourishes. Brioski's <i>Bonus Mix</i> shakes a bit more, with an added techno influence flavoring its mid-tempo groove. The digital release of "Weird" also features the original 'pop' version and a remix from the rising Robot Needs Oil, who adds blasts of wah-wah guitar and horn stabs among the synths and string glides, recalling a vintage Trevor Horn dance production. Prime time stuff here from Electunes and Mohear, suitable for retronauts and futuristas alike.
