The Chemical Brothers have unveiled the third track to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘Born In The Echoes’.
‘Under Neon Lights’ is a collaboration alongside alongside St Vincent, speaking about the track Tom Rowlands said, “We’re always looking to work with likeminded people who do something a bit different to us. Annie is an amazing artist who was very up for experimenting.”
The song is a unique blend of intoxicating vocals, grizzly synths line and the duo’s schizophrenic drums lines that culminate in track that’s very unique but still very much a Chems track at its core.
Next weekend The Chemical Brothers will play a headline slot at Glastonbury, and today revealed a few details ahead of the show.
- A collaboration with dancer Akram Khan (MBE), who was filmed using motion capture at Andy Serkis’s Imaginarium Studios.
- A psychedelic Dionysian ritual ceremony inspired by the 50’s underground films of Kenneth Anger. The Double exposed images and saturated colours reflect the 60’s feel of “I’ll see you there” from the new album. The cast includes Benedict Wong (Sunshine, Prometheus) and Liam Walpole (Goob).
- A dizzying trip on a fairground ride for song “EML Ritual”.
- A film for the new single “Go” starring two South Korean roller skater dancers
- An army of “sharpy” lights which form a grid on the stage floor all programmed to seamlessly interact with the visuals to create ‘three dimensional environments’.
- Two huge ’50s inspired tin toy robots that fire lasers from their eyes and lip synch samples.
- A massive reflector that the sharpy lights fire at creating a unique take on the traditional mirror ball effect (if Anish Kapoor made a mirror ball, it might look something like this)
