SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCE NEW EP
Stream The Single ‘1968’ HERE
OUT NOVEMBER 4TH ON CIRCUS RECORDS
Pre-Order The Album on iTunes
With two incredibly successful albums under their belt Submotion Orchestra bring their latest five track EP to UK independent Circus Records. The seven-piece group that formed in 2009 have forged a large loyal fan base with their blend of Electronica, Jazz, Dub and Soul, music that has been described as ‘stunning’ by The Guardian and ‘seductive’ by The Times.
Following a chance meeting in London with Circus co-founder Flux Pavilion who declared his love for the band, SubMo promptly signed to the label reaffirming the notion that Circus have always sought to release only the highest quality music, regardless of genre. Flux Pavilion says “to release Submo on Circus is amazing, I’ve always been a big fan of their music.”
The new EP 1968 is a masterclass in ethereal, soulful vocals that sit astride shuffling drums as on ‘Broken World’ or ‘Breathe It In’. Lead singer Ruby’s voice echoes early pop Janet Jackson on ‘Damn Hot’ whilst title track ‘1968’ is smooth and subtle: echoing piano keys gliding beneath intricate layers of sound.
Following debut album Finest Hour in 2011 and Fragments in 2012, the Leeds band return with a subtle piece of art in 1968 that weaves its way into your brain, takes hold and never lets go. Primed to take their music to a whole new audience with Circus Records, let Submotion Orchestra take you to a whole musical landscape with 1968.
Ready to soothe amongst a sea of electronic dance music, Submotion Orchestra will hit the road next month for their fourth headlining European tour. With stops in Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, London, Bristol and Brighton, the 1968 Tour will be their deepest, most soulful, bass driven, spine-tingling-ly beautiful one yet.
