Music Video Debut: SPACE - "Strange World"

It was back in August that I posted about the latest resurgence of an old favourite of mine - UK-based SPACE. While "Strange World" was simply being announced as the new single at the time, it's out on November 13, and tonight I've got the video for you. "Strange World" is the title track for the next full-length album from SPACE, currently promised for an early 2016 release date. Check out the video...

If you live here in the 'States, there's a pretty solid chance that if you're familiar with the band SPACE, you know them from one song only - their 1996 single, "Female of the Species." The retro vibe of that song tapped into the moment - a time when audiences were embracing the 60's, and nothing solidified that more than its remixed inclusion on the soundtrack for AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY in 1997. SPIDERS, the album from which that single came, became one of my favorite albums of the 90s, and while SPACE became popular in their UK home (and elsewhere in the world), like many great bands, their audience in the U.S. just never materialized in the way that it should have. Eager for the release of their next album, TIN PLANET, I was disappointed when it didn't receive a proper Stateside release (it since has), and SPACE became a mystery whose music was hard to track down in those early days of the internet boom, with the geographic availability paired with a hard-to-search name making less-savory outlets the only place to dig for treasure until the 2005 release of a 2-Disc GREATEST HITS collection that paired songs from their first two albums with remixes and b-sides. You can imagine my surprise when an email arrived at Rock Father HQ this morning with a simple message: "SPACE are back!"
