Video of the Moment #2798: Simian Mobile Disco

By on Wednesday, 28th February 2018 at 6:00 pm

Simian Mobile Disco (much aged compared to the photo I have on the top of this post) will be releasing a new album this spring. James Ford and Jas Shaw will debut LP ‘Murmurations’, their fifth, on the 11th of May on Wichita Recordings. The lead single from the upcoming record is ‘Caught in a Wave’. For a song with a name like this, it’s suitably ephemeral and floaty at its start before the driving beat sets in.

In terms of vocals, the pair enlisted the help of the all-female London collective Deep Throat Choir on this track and others on the LP, lending a decidedly different air to the proceedings than was present on their past studio albums. With lots of textural interest, ‘Caught in a Wave’ is a great track to get those of us who love dance music out of the winter doldrums and make us think of sunnier days and sultrier nights we’ll be spending (hopefully, anyway) in a discotheque. Watch the video for ‘Caught in a Wave’ below. We haven’t written much lately about Simian Mobile Disco, but all of our past coverage on the duo is through here.
