Simian Mobile Disco “Seraphim”


Seraphim is the lead single from Simian Mobile Disco’s forthcoming album Unpatterns (out May 15 on Wichita Recordings). A spaced out, trippy piece of electronica that sees duo James Ford and Jas Shaw pushing the boundaries of their sound into more experimental territories. The brilliant video created for the track was directed by Aoife Mcardle and it observes the issues of OCD, showing a series of scenes with people going over their obsessive-compulsive type behaviours, a visual metaphor that the band say works as a parallel to their music and how they’re inspired by ideas of repeated loops and patterns breaking down and decaying over time. Seraphim is currently available as a free download at SMD’s soundcloud page.
