Simian Mobile Disco – Caught In A Wave

Simian Mobile Disco will release their fifth album Murmurations on May 11 via Wichita Recordings.

Today, they share lead single Caught In A Wave, which comes accompanied by a video directed by Kiani Del Valle. Del Valle says of the video:

“For ‘Caught In A Wave’ I wanted to explore the idea of chaos. I’ve been fascinated by mosh pits and have always been deeply moved by all the codes in its culture and the science of adrenaline and endorphin release. From pogo to slam dance and hardcore dancing, what mainly excites my eye is the physical impact and the sense of trust and commitment between strangers.”

“Juxtaposing a mosh pit with a choreographed contemporary dance routine, I wanted to create an atmosphere for these two things to not only meet but also to elevate each other. The glue between the two also being the underlying friendship/love story where both characters are continually in the midst of a turning point.”
