Fresh off the release of their critically acclaimed album ‘Unpatterns’ comes ‘A Form Of Change’, a brand new EP from Simian Mobile Disco, aka James Ford and Jas Shaw. The collection of four tracks taken from the ‘Unpatterns’ recording sessions is another example of Simian Mobile Disco’s restless creativity, and their yen for refining and redefining the parameters of their own musical landscape with almost laser-like precision, following Brian Eno’s maxim that “repetition is a form of change.”
The title track opens with two minutes of ambient textures and warm drones, before snapping on a kick-and-woodblock pattern that anchors the track as the various melodies weave in and out of time with each other over the sprawling psychedelic background. Look for Simian Mobile Disco to return to North America this autumn/fall, premiering their new live show at the FYF Fest in Los Angeles Labor Day weekend and returning in December for a full North American live tour.
