Bernholz has been collaborating with Neil Arthur of Blancmange.
Their new project is called ‘Near Future'; the duo have produced music and artwork through a series of timed email exchanges, resulting in the angular, percussive ‘Ideal Home’ as their debut single. The shared vocals and atmospheric production (with lyrics by Bernholz) maintain a balance between cold, detached observation and human feeling. The track has already received airplay courtesy of Gideon Coe on BBC 6Music.
Meanwhile, the B-side ‘Overwhelmed’ is more emotional. A quietly moving piece of music written and recorded by Bernholz, the track inspired Neil Arthur to write the words, take the lead vocal and add some further loops and sounds.
