Simian Mobile Disco Announce Unpatterns LP, New Song


We don’t know much about Simian Mobile Disco’s upcoming third full-length record Unpatterns, because the duo just announced it in hyper-minimalist form, what with a relaunched website that features just a title, release date, and brand new track. “Fourteenth Principles” is the band’s too-short two-minute teaser for the upcoming record and it sounds like the electronic soundtrack for a desert archaeology thriller – a good 95% of the instrumentation consists of undulating, pitch-shifted echoed vocals, backed up by droning synths. We’re excited to see where the duo will go from here – into their customary dance territory, or something more along these minimalist lines? We’ll find out when the record drops May 14.
