These days, all I feel like I listen to when I’m not working is downtempo, electronic soul fusion artists like Disclosure, Flume, Bonobo, and more of their ilk. Morcheeba has been around for a while and really set the stage for current artists like the ones I mentioned above.
Morcheeba is back however, and their new song “Gimme Your Love” is a sexy, slinky boom-bap affair that I like, a lot. Skye’s vocals glide easily over the elastic funk of the track, and it serves as a great reintroduction to their music after being gone for a few years. Can they continue to be the pioneers they used to be in this arena? Who knows, but the bridge alone makes me want to stay tuned and see what their new album sounds like.
The video itself is full of fashionable figurines in some dazzling shots and poses, and it fits as well. Will the vets be able to stand out amongst the newer versions of themselves? Time will tell.
If you’ve never been in the know about Morcheeba’s music (like me), I’d love to hear your thoughts — and if you have been a fan, how does this stack up against their previous bodies of work?
