Mount Kimbie shares video for new track ‘Marilyn‘ featuring vocals from Micachu directed by photographer and filmmaker Mark Lebon.
London duo Mount Kimbie have been fairly quiet over the last year, after extensively touring their sophomore album ‘Cold Spring Fault Less Youth‘, the pair have only popped up from time-to-time playing DJ sets around Europe. Last month Kai and Dom announced their NTS Radio residencies featuring new material from guest Archie Marshall (King Krule) before announcing their first single ‘We Go Home Together‘.
‘Marilyn‘ will be the second track the duo have released this year, previously recruiting long time friend and collaborator James Blake on ‘We Go Home Together’. The collaboration continues on this one with Mica Levi of Micachu and the Shapes, Kai Campos says “Mica’s work has been a constant source of inspiration for us and I’m grateful she wanted to sing on this one because as a singer and a lyricist I think she brings so much”. ‘Marilyn‘ continues to explore realms outside of their electronic roots, as on ‘Cold Spring Fault Less Youth‘, the pair continues to experiment with live instrumentation and drums.
