Electronic radicals Simian Mobile Disco will release their new artist album – number four – this September.

‘Whorl’ marks a major departure from the duo’s equipment-heavy sounds to date, Disco boys James Ford and Jas Shaw relying only on live instruments, an analogue synthesizer and sequencer.  The album was recorded earlier this year in the Southern Californian desert (the Joshua Tree National Park) – one of the main stripped back recording sessions took place at Pappy & Harriet’s saloon bar in  to over 900 people.

Pre-order Album

The album’s first single, Tangents’, is released by ANTI- (home to Beth Orton and Kronos Quartet) 30 June. Whorl itself drops 9 September, the same day as an accompanying gig at London’s Union Chapel.
