The undisputed masters of brain-altering, transcendent electronics return with their first studio album since 2010’s Further and we have copies up for grabs!
Released to coincide with headline slots at Glastonbury, Sonar and Bestival, The Chemical Brothers’ eighth studio album – Born In The Echoes – is a magnificent eleven-track collection of lean, propulsive machine driven music. From juddering robotic funk to unhinged futurist Freakbeat; icy spectral psych to rhapsodic analog synthetics; from euphoric spiritual acid to harmonic ambient distortion, the album is the sound of a reinvigorated Chemical Brothers creating some of the most mind-expanding music of their career to date.
Born In The Echoes features a stellar cast of collaborators including previous guests Q-Tip (Go – the current single – watch here and Ali Love (EML Ritual) as well as first time visitors to the studio – St. Vincent (Under Neon Lights), Cate Le Bon (Born In The Echoes) and Beck (Wide Open – his first new music since his Grammy winning album Morning Phase). In each case, the vocals are assimilated into the music, helping to create music that’s uniquely that of the Chemical Brothers at their peerless best – an unmistakable sound that recently saw the band (Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons) win the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Song Collection. The award recognized the duo’s position as one of the most influential acts in global electronic music.
