Givin’ ‘Em Love, Morcheeba.

Givin’ ‘Em Love, Morcheeba.

It feels counterintuitive on so many heterogeneous levels to go extolling the virtues of AC mainstays Morcheeba, not least as they’re a trio whose records are more frequently seen in twilit service stations than they are riding high on The Hype Machine, although recent single Gimme Your Love is doubtless meritorious of the highest of praises. A sultry slink fuelled by Skye Edwards’ smoky firelighter vocal, its gloopy psych solos and immersive synth bloop have since been complemented by a suitably prismatic video which feels wholly reflective of the band’s ongoing endeavours to bring great colour, and with that unanticipated shape to an otherwise all too frequently generic pop music. “Our love’s here to last/ We’re gonna feel alive” insists Edwards, and you’d be foolhardy to resist her advances this time around…

Gimme Your Love is taken from Morcheeba’s forthcoming eighth studio full-length, Head Up High, which is anticipated October 14th via [PIAS] Recordings.
