So remember a little while ago when we thought Simian Mobile Disco were teasing their new record Unpatterns with that ambient drone track “Fourteenth Principles”? Well, not quite – that track, though it’s great, won’t show up on the new record, but the duo’s first single, “Seraphim,” which just premiered on BBC, will.
This one fits way better in the SMD oeuvre of hyper-catchy, clubby dance music – they’ve delegated those shimmery drones from “Fourteenth Principles” to the background of a classic, sexy cut of synthpop gold with a fantastic, undulating bass throb and lovely, abstracted vocal sample. They’ll drop this track on a single April 9th – the whole record’s coming May 14th.
