The band describe their new single as a “song is about the importance of the transformative, non-verbal moment – ecstasy as personal happiness, but also of transcendence, of being outside oneself” & a “bombastic explosion of Technicolor pop”. This explosion is certainly reflected in the Nina Nourizadeh directed video.
According to a statement from the band the new track began life as an “a 12-minute instrumental track featuring a sample from the gospel group the Mighty Clouds Of Joy evolved into a larger-than-life pop song“. The track is expected to be the opening track of their new Album “A Bath Full Of Ecstasy” which will be delivered with a worldwide tour this autumn
