The empire strikes back! Since April 2013, we have been recording our album No.3 as Mārtiņš & Kalvis (+ friends). Finally, the time has come to reveal the first results – the first STandART single in 5 years.

The main song is available in both English (Fever) and Latvian (Drudzis). It’s written by Mārtiņš & Kalvis and inspired by the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun’s novel “Mysteries” (1892).

We have made it available on Bandcamp for free. Enjoy and spread the word! You can also leave a donation and help us finish the new album sooner.

Recorded by Sandris Savickis (Starring Two) in Jūrmala.
Mixed and mastered by Kaspars Tobis (7 Synths, Dzelzs Vilks) in Sigulda.
Produced by Kalvis Kluburs. Additional musicians – Juris Tipa & Edgars Liljē.
The Empire Strikes Back (JRSTPA RMX) remixed by Juris Tipa in Mexico City. Contains a sample from “Aum” by John Sobocan. Original version (“June”) available on the album “Autumn News”.

You can also listen to the songs on YouTube, as well as to this small teaser we published this summer:

There are no live performances planned at the moment. Trying our best to finish the album in near future.

Autumn greetings!
