Simian Mobile Disco - Seraphim

After the release of the under-the-radar compilation album ‘Delicacies’, James Ford and Jas Shaw return with new album ‘Unpatterns’, due for release in May. In recent press, the duo have stated that they have been “inspired by ideas of repeated loops and patterns breaking down and decaying over time” and on lead single ‘Seraphim’, the influence is extremely easy to spot. With a simple synth line repeated throughout the main production, with a subtly but silky bass-line accompanying it, Simian’s return to the electronic music scene isn’t a brash and in your face affair. The single, paired with b-side ‘Put Your Hands Together’, has a light touch of the deep-house genre that moves away from their usual wild and electronic sound. Ultimately, the track reminds fans that they have kept up with the modern scene with gusto and are definitely running with it. Seraphim reignites a passion for Simian Mobile Disco which was kind of lost after the “difficult second album” and personally, I can’t wait for the next productions from the album.
