"Seraphim", the brand new single from Simian Mobile Disco and the first to be taken from their forthcoming album "Unpatterns", sees the duo of James Ford and Jas Shaw pushing the boundaries of their sonic exploration further than they ever have before. In a sharp leftfield turn from the addictive pop ballast and canny guest vocals of their previous records, "Seraphim" sees them in playfully experimental form, creating a spatial, spaced out anthem drenched in sun-kissed euphoria.
With their albums to date, spanning from their seminal debut Attack Decay Sustain Release to 2011's compilation album Delicacies, the only throughline in their varied career has been their constant refusal to play by the rules, their creative restlessness resulting in them staying perpetually ahead of the curve. With "Seraphim", they have once again broken free from traditional strictures to create a monster of a record which occupies a temporal zone entirely its own.
This summer will also see Simian Mobile Disco unveiling a string of DJ dates across the UK and Europe in May, including a very special one off DJ/ video collaboration at Mixmag Live in London, with Weirdcore and ISO Studios working with the band on multi-screen projections, as featured in the teaser below.
