LP - black vinyl

This collaboration is full of synchronicities that go all the way back to 2020, when The Galaxy Electric (Jacqueline & Joshua Mikszan) started conjuring the melodies and arrangements for this project – without knowing what it would be for. Their obsession with Retro SciFi films & TV shows was thoroughly indulged during the COVID lockdown: “It was our “escape” out of reality. Shows like The X-Files, Dr. Who, and movies like Forbidden Planet and Clockwork Orange were our strange bedfellows guiding us to create music like we’d never made before.” The result was a mix of electronica, psych pop and retro-futurism blending together to form music fit for the Korova Milkbar. As they emerged from this cocoon of sci-fi isolation, Jacqueline & Joshua began reaching out, connecting online with other obsessives: “Through our shared love of BBC Radiophonic Workshop Sound FX Records, we connected instantly and deeply with Drew Mulholland. Across time zones and land masses, our connection sparked creative collaboration like we’ve never known, and this new project was re-born. We knew in an instant that those forgotten ideas were meant for this moment. And thus began the files flying back and forth – until the synchronicities became fully manifest into what is now Muzak for the Korova Milkbar.. Drew may tell it differently, but the sense of nostalgia, deja vu & mystical connection remains the same. A project we could have never set out to produce on our own, and that was always meant to be created with Drew. A dream fulfilled.”
