Art vs Science Release New Single ‘I Saw You’

Over the course of their accomplished discography to date, Art vs Science have shown us their versatility as a genre defying trio with bold ideas and experimental tunes. Today they return with their latest offering I Saw You which sees them deep dive into a post midnight vibe with dance-floor ready thumping beats and hypnotic uplifting synths that cleverly craft a feeling of euphoria.

This latest jam follows on from SWEAT released in late 2021. SWEAT was produced by Kim Moyes (The Presets), and peaked at #30 on the ARIA club charts in January. Both songs are lifted from their forthcoming third studio album Big Overdrive released on August 5. It’s their first album release in seven years.

Produced by Dan Mac and Dan Williams from the band, with mixing and mastering by Perth based producer Sam Ford at his Tone City Recording Studio (POND, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) , I Saw You has an emphasis on DIY with Dan Mac finding weird locations and setting up mics in bedrooms and kitchens to capture Dan W’s epic drum performances. “The bulk of their forthcoming album was tracked at Dan Mac’s parent’s old place in Dural, in a sweaty hotbox near the attic, using a handful of microphones and a bucketload of vibe.” Art vs Science

In an incredible example of their amazing song writing and creativity, Art vs Science have chosen the new songs for Big Overdrive from a time range spanning 2012 to 2022. At the time, many of them were considered too experimental, or too strange, or not quite “on brand”. “In the course of selecting the music for this long awaited album, some of these rare sessions were uncovered, and the joy and fun embedded within were plain to hear. Of course, lots of love and expertise came from actual outside experts such as Kim Moyes (The Presets), Alex Gooden (Mix Engineer, SAFIA), Sam Ford (Tone City Records), Joe La Porta (Mastering, Sterling Sound), and Guy Davies (Mastering, Electric Mastering).

“Big Overdrive is a celebration of jamming and making music which is fun, different and experimental. It’s a collection of tracks written over most of the band’s lifespan, with an emphasis on songs which we think are beautiful in their weirdness. The themes of the songs span love, loss, exuberance, life, death and passion. And dancing.” Art vs Science
