WE GO HOME TOGETHER | MOUNT KIMBIE FT JAMES BLAKE

Everybody stop what you’re doing. Mount Kimbie is back. And they’re working with James Blake.The beautiful UK duo Mount Kimbie (Dominic Maker and Kai Campos) has released their newest song since their sophomore album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth came out in 2013. ‘We Go Home Together’ is a soulful song, heralding a new direction for the duo. You feel like it’s their effort to try and find a raw sound in this murky, ambient track.

It first sounds like a rough demo – with an unrefined combination of a tambourine, electric organ and cackling in the background. There are even mistakes that they’ve left in the song, one example being Blake’s voice cracking. This is far from their careful, almost perfect production in Cold Spring Fault Less Youth.

It’s simple and understated, a different vibe from the boys. The minimalism of the production grates against Blake’s trademark warbling vocals but it’s appeasing to the ears, like some electronic glitchy gospel song. Bravo! Keen for this album!
