VIDEO: When Saints Go Machine – Kelly
I could quite easily rave about Scandinavian music all day long, and the Scandinavian way of life whilst I’m at it, both are basically ideals translated perfectly from paper to practice. There must be something in the water, like DMT, that makes everything function like a dream. Danish quartet, When Saints Go Machine, are a superb example and testament to this. Always well ahead of the curve when it comes to blissfully weird electronica that manages to wilfully ignore the limits of electronic music, sometimes dancefloor friendly, sometimes spaced out but always leftfield and always a trip out that brings together influences as diverse as soul, techno, post punk and jazz. Their new single, Kelly, which is out on the 19th September, manages to pack all of that into a tightly bound three and a half minutes of electronic genre bending perfection. Their latest album, Konkylie, is a total dream to behold as well and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Go buy it!
