Bicycle Theme is the first single off the latest Simian Ghost release, Lovelorn.
It's 3 minutes of blissful electronic pop music, drawing as much on the aesthetic of traditional electro and indie pop, as it does on the more contemporary glo-fi movement.
"Lovelorn as a whole is about loneliness I guess,” Sebastian Arnström says, “and Bicycle Theme is no exception. It's about growing old and realizing you're starting to repeat yourself in the way you handle life, the way you handle love more specifically.”
“It's kind of an abstract mid life crisis pop-anthem or something like that, even though I might be a little to young to write that", he says and smiles.
The single comes with a series of remixes, starting with one by the talented group Light Vibes, which consists of Erik and Mathias from the Simian Ghost live act.
The three of them together are currently writing the second Simian Ghost full-length, planned for release sometime in the autumn of 2011.
There is also two alternate versions of the song by Sebastian himself, one remix and one complete re-edit.
The video is made by the very talented Victor Claeson.
