“…their most spectacular album to date” – The Line Of Best Fit

London duo Simian Mobile Disco’s new album Murmurations, out today via Wichita Recordings, is earning rave early reviews, including from NME, The Line Of Best Fit, DJ Mag, The Independent, and The Arts Desk, which gave it 4/5 stars. See below for more early praise; stream and purchase the album here

A thrilling 9-song set, Murmurations is as perfectly pitched for headphones as it is for clubs, named after giant cloud formations of starlings and themed around the stunning emergent behaviors that appear within them. To mirror these movements in the sonic landscape and visuals of Murmurations, James Ford and Jas Shaw collaborated with the celebrated Hackney-based vocal collective The Deep Throat Choir, as well as creative directors Kazim Rashid of ENDLESSLOVESHOW (Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawk) and Carri Munden to create a music video trilogy:
