New single coming soon…

Optic is currently working on new material for a new release later this year. Meanwhile we will release a new remix of the classic song China Kite from our debut album Sunset Noir, once again remixed by our dear friend Erik Skalin. The single will also include remixes of Devil & I and Freak Show Cabaret, previously only released on compilations.

New Single Available

We are happy to finally present our new single “Saint”, a song which was initially written for a live show at Fotografiska in Stockholm, August 2010.  It was meant to be included on the “Killing the Brave EP”, but was rejected in the last phase of the recording, as we felt it didn’t fit in conceptually.The single contains three versions of the song; the “Single Edit” which is very “eighties” and “Yazoo-ish”, the “Movement Mix” which has a strong “nineties” and Pet Shop Boys feel to it, and a third version named “Dirty Jam Mix” -a tribute to the alternative scene of the late seventies. Once again we collaborate with photographer and art director Andreas Beronius. Saint is released in a digital format only, and can be streamed or purchased at all major digital distributors world wide.

Recording of Saint

We’re happy to be back in the studio. This session was very productive. Recording of the vocals for Saint which will be released before the summer with two or three supporting remixes.

We’ll be back very soon…


Happy Birthday Mr Dave Gahan

We would like to take the opportunity to pay tribute to Mr. Dave Gahan who turns 50 today by sharing a cover version of the Depeche Mode classic “No Disco”. This was done under the name Depot II (2004) and released on a Depeche Mode tribute album called Modefied, just before Optic era began, with Pontus and Eric (Raindancer) on vocals and Marc on keyboards. Enjoy and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dave Gahan!
