It’s been four years since The Go! Team released their last album, the excellent Rolling Blackouts, and to be honest, it was believed this was to be their last as they were to go their separate ways.
Thankfully the latter has proved untrue as The Go! Team emerged from a sustained period of silence with news of new LP The Scene Between. The album is penned for release on March 24th through Memphis Industries, it is said it sees a return to their roots somewhat with band-leader Ian Parton writing, performing and producing all of the songs himself. While the other members were busy with their own projects, Parton found himself working much in the same way that he had in the project’s earliest days — crate digging, fooling around by himself, trying to nail a feeling. Along with the announcement, they have offered up the album title track as a wee taster. ‘The Scene Between’ is brightly cheery, sample-heavy and adorned with all the catchiness and pep we’ve come to expect from The Go! Team. It is a typically beautiful Go! Team jam, with a somewhat mellower vibe, a rolling mix of indie, pop, electronic and hip-hip with huge drums, sweet vocals, a sonic explosion of samples and sheer joy.
It’s rather nice to have them back isn’t it? The Scene Between is out on March 24th but for now you can try the title track out for size below.
