Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are keeping busy with the brand new track ‘First World Problems‘.

It’s a very swift jump from last year’s ‘Multi-Love‘ album, which itself hadn’t taken too long to follow 2013’s ‘II‘, and was premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 yesterday.

“I think ‘First World Problem’ is about modern love in a crumbling empire,” Ruban Nielson says. “The feeling that you’re trying to build your life and get what you need while a decadent world falls apart around you.”

Unknown Mortal Orchestra play Glastonbury next month and have headline shows prior at the Cambridge Junction on June 21st and the Liverpool Arts Club on June 22nd.

“What really makes this album exceptional though is that if one dissects it into its elements, it’s an expansive library of sound history,” Live4ever said of ‘Multi-Love’.

“Yet taken as a whole, it offers a look into the future: in a world of ever-increasing technology and accelerating creation, a pastiche of synthetic sounds is the key to being unique. Nielson gives this idea an ironic twist by making use of as much retro gear as possible to sound futuristic.”
