"Well can I say about DURAN2?!?!? Apart from being really nice and affable people they are a very polished tight band re-creating the sound that made Duran Duran the force that they were back in the day. The night went down a treat kicking off with Planet Earth then into Hungry Like...
New DURAN2 demo: The Reflex
The Reflex, released worldwide on 16 April 1984, was the eleventh single by Duran Duran and the third and last to be taken from their third album Seven and the Ragged Tiger. It was heavily remixed in both its 7" and 12" formats by Nile Rodgers of Chic and Daft Punk fame. He would subsequently go on to produce The Wild Boys single as well as the Notorious album.
Now about to hit its thirtieth aniversary, the song still sounds as fresh and exciting as it did back in 1984.
The Reflex became the band's most successful single. It was their second single to top the UK singles chart topping the chart on 5 May 1984. The single entered the charts in America on 21 April 1984 at #46, became Duran Duran's first of two singles to hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on 23 June 1984 and was a massive hit internationally.
DURAN2 will be releasing further recordings over the coming months, including:
- Ordinary World
- Save A Prayer
- Hungry Like The Wolf
