And if last week wasn’t enough for me to piss off everyone from the Auckland dance music scene simply because I called all their female Djs “mediocre” and should produce music rather than play everyone else…this lands on our internet doorstep.

Submotion Orchestra have fast risen to fame ever since forming in 2009 when they met in Leeds. After two critically acclaimed abums, “Fragments” and “Finest Hour”, the inspirational group is back with number three. ‘Alium’ sees the band reach new heights and push the sound of Submotion Orchestra to new levels with every member having their own creative input upon the writing process. Two years in the making, having hidden away in the Welsh countryside to write, “Alium” is finally ready and oh is it breath taking.
There is a great variation in moods throughout the collection, transporting the listener from jazzy lounge bar vibes through to electro synths powering over aggressive drums. Ruby Wood takes the lead for the majority of tracks, with as ever, a beautiful vocal performance that fits over the various sceneries produced from the music.
Bringing in further instrumentation such as the strings and trumpet really bring out a more vibrant colour in the productions. Trumpeter Simon Bedoe is given his time to shine in various songs, with “The Hounds” outro gaining a special mention for mesmerising creativity.
“Alium” is out now so go and submerse yourself in it here.
