Share JAB remix of “PRISM”
2021 UK & European tour dates announced
New album ‘KOMPROMAT’ out now via Atlantic Curve

I LIKE TRAINS’ ode to invasive mass surveillance has been remixed by James Adrian Brown of Pulled Apart By Horses fame. Informed by his recent work scoring for film and television, Brown strips the original of its motorik rhythm and takes it somewhere altogether more sinister. Creeping string sections, submerged vocals and dystopian synthesiser arpeggios play perfectly into the general sense of unease.
“Working a remix of ‘PRISM’ was really quite exciting for me,” Brown explains. “It’s my favourite track from I LIKE TRAINS’ latest LP and I could hear the route it would take before I even began working on it. The track lends itself to some really thoughtful lyrics and beautiful vocal melodies, so I sculpted the synths and strings wrapped around those integral characters of the song to build on what the essence of the track is for me.”
“When James approached us with the idea of remixing ‘PRISM’, we weren’t sure what to expect, but it was clear he had a vision for it,” I LIKE TRAINS’ David Martin adds. “His take fits perfectly into KOMPROMAT’s paranoid world of data collection and disinformation. We’ve known James for a long time, and seen him grow through various bands in Leeds. His enthusiasm for music and making things happen is genuinely infectious, and we can’t wait to see where his new solo work takes him.” 


The remix keeps the ominous atmosphere at the forefront of this rework and cuts this precise shocking attribute into the eerie and complex soundscape that I LIKE TRAINS are renowned for creating, whilst focusing on that thrilling essence. The dominating vocal notes and damning lyrics become a thread amongst the course instrumentation that the audience focuses on, allured by the brooding tones but fixated on the connection between artist and audience.

‘PRISM’ is taken from the KOMPROMAT album, released on Atlantic Curve in 2020.
