The combination of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons (The Chemical Brothers), last delivered a studio album in 2010 with Further so we must agree that the forthcoming release of their latest album Born in the Echoes on July 17th is one to get excited about.
Most recently the track of “Go” featuring Q-Tip has been the first to caress our ears as a taster, growing in presence on the radio and on hearing it, seems like this could be an album well worth the wait. A song which was used for the introduction of Google’s I/O Keynote in 2015, is a distinct and fresh burst of hip house with the distinguishable voice of Q-Tip complementing that recognisable electronic vibe synonymous with The Chemical Brothers, including powerful synth hits throughout. For me its certainly one to take with you on a trip to the gym.
Whilst the song really has our heads moving, so the video is equally as catchy. Directed by frenchman Michel Gondry who has collaborated with The Chemical Brothers in the past, the film sees a procession of matching dressed dancers like a scene from Metropolis, wonderfully in sync to the backdrop of some Bauhaus-esq architecture in Paris 15th district. Personally I think it compliments the song fantastically however we will let you judge for yourself. Check out the guys live this sunday the 28th at Glastonbury and see the music video below.
“Go” is available to download from Itunes store now.
