Video of the Moment #1579: Simian Mobile Disco

It’s kind of a given that Simian Mobile Disco videos will be computer-generated images on a loop and therefore kind of clinical, yeah? So it should come as no surprise that the promo for ‘Tangents’ follows this rule. This song has been released ahead of the band’s forthcoming ‘Whorl’, out on the 9th of September on Anti Records.

Interestingly, we’ve heard that the electronic duo – James Ford and Jas Shaw – put limitations on themselves during the recording of the new LP, only allowing themselves only one rack of modular synth gear and one sequencer each to use. And no computers. At all. Hmm. Only time will tell what this will mean to SMD’s sound on the new release.
