Mount Kimbie “Marilyn” [ft. Micachu]
Topic Started: Thu 5 Oct 2017, 09:01:58 (31 Views)

Often, bands change their sound because of a shift in the idols they worship. Mount Kimbie’s early, soft-focus dance songs—often erroneously labelled “post-dubstep”—were youthful love letters to garage and the golden era of UK club music. This year’s “We Go Home Together,” their first song in four years, was a low-key, high-profile collaboration with James Blake that made it clear that members Dominic Maker and Kai Campos were distancing themselves from the easy listening electronic that made them festival regulars; it was a less glossy, more soulful and imperfect approach to songwriting.

Mount Kimbie’s latest release “Marilyn,” featuring Micachu, fully reveals not just their new aspirations but the new figures influencing Mount Kimbie’s universe. The song is watery and noisy—the viscous synths, clicking drums, and whirling ambient noise recall This Heat, while the ghostly vocals and free-floating vibe are borrowed from Arthur Russell. Micachu, in particular, is in her element, navigating the irregular rhythms and off-kilter melodies with ease. Campos and Maker, never the best vocalists, rise to the challenge, floating through the soupy sonics with water wings. The horn section that ends the song is the closest the track comes to triumphant—otherwise, all the elements here are rendered in a deep, melancholic blue. It’s obvious now that Mount Kimbie are a world away from their big-room dancefloor aspirations, and with “Marilyn,” they continue to embrace a more quiet future
