Simian Mobile Disco – Audacity of Huge Official Video
Simian Mobile Disco are an English production and remix team. Formed from the ashes of Simian in 2005 its members are James Ford and Jas Shaw. The latest single Audacity of Huge featuring Chris Keating from Yeasayer is pretty catchy and has a very cool video to go with it. Check it out after the break, the colors are amazing!
Simian Mobile Disco was originally formed as a traveling DJ duet, playing on the side of their early four-piece band Simian. They ultimately released a number of low profile singles, such as “The Count” on Kitsuné Music, but arguably gained more fame for their remixes of artists such as Muse, Klaxons, The Go! Team, Air and others. In 2006, Kitsuné released SMD’s underground hit “Hustler”, which features a vocal performance from New York singer Char Johnson.
Musically, Simian Mobile Disco are known for heavily stylized tracks —often with minimal instrumentation— that associate themselves with a particular hook (vocal or instrumental —see mix of “Whoo! Alright, Yeah…Uh Huh” by The Rapture), which is repeated throughout the track. There is often a breakdown (occasionally more —see mix of “Magick” by Klaxons) comprising noise, drums and sometimes synths and vocals.
