Simian Mobile Disco are an English electronic music duo and production team, formed in 2003 by James Ford and Jas Shaw of the band Simian. Musically, they are known for their analogue production.
The duo’s sixth album Murmurations was announced in February 2018 for release in May, alongside the premiere of its first single “Caught In A Wave”. It is their first album since 2013’s Live to be released on Wichita Recordings. The album was recorded in collaboration with The Deep Throat Choir, who will join the band for the initial tour dates. In a statement announcing the album, Shaw comments: “Listening to them moving their voices around a tone, altering the timbre, making chords, was like working with an incredible new synthesiser.” Bulgarian choir music, Cocteau Twins, Iannis Xenakis and Pauline Oliveiros are noted as influences for the album.
