Brighton, England indie group The Go! Team are returning with their fourth full length in 2015.
Ian Parton, mastermind of the group, wrote, produced and performed The Scene Between, and it’s scheduled to come out in March. The title track was released on Soundcloud, as was a trailer for the album also dropped.
The band has an everything but the kitchen sink kind of sound: there’s elements of hip hop and brit rock/pop to double Dutch and Bollywood mixed with electronic beats, distorted guitars, and lots of samples. In an article on Pitchfork, Parton said the process for the new album had to abide by four rules:
“Melody would guide the song, samples would be treated as an instrument rather than a basis for the song, the production would vary across the song like flipping the dial on the radio and the singers must all be people he’d never previously heard of.”
This preview gives a bit of a stylized and literal idea of what he was talking about.
The Scene Between comes out March 24.
