Upfront and Original Matters are thrilled to present Unknown Mortal Orchestra live in Malaysia at The Bee 25 September! From the distorted guitar rhythms of ‘II’ to the synth electronica that is ‘Multi-Love’, the Kiwi psych-rockers are back with their 4th record, ‘Sex & Food’.
The band has come a long way since their basement recording beginnings in 2010, where frontman Ruban Nielson put up the track ‘Ffunny Ffrends’ onto an anonymous Bandcamp profile, gaining significant coverage from music blogs like Pitchfork. Soon after, Unknown Mortal Orchestra went on to release their widely acclaimed self-titled debut, as well as records ‘II’ (2013) and ‘Multi-Love’ (2015) which skyrocketed them into international prominence.
In early 2016, the band began working on ‘Sex & Food’. The recording process followed Ruban across the globe on a quest for creative inspiration. From Seoul and Hanoi to Reykjavik, Mexico City, and Auckland, it was a distant journey out of his usual home recording setting back in Oregon. This musical pilgrimage eventually returned him back to his roots, where he reflected on and drew inspiration from his earlier work, blending the elements of old into a new psychedelic R&B groove with a tinge of modern age paranoia, while still maintaining his hook-heavy vocals and simple yet thought-provoking lyrics.
Described as ‘Fuzzy, funky, and seriously fun’ by NME Music, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s live show will be an out-of-world experience that’ll keep your body poppin’ and head swinging! Get your tickets now!
