Mount Kimbie have released a new video for their track “Marilyn”, which features the vocal talents of experimental wizard Micachu. Graced by softly rolling mallets, sparse percussion and cloudy reverberation, the atmospheric track is less inclined towards the dancefloor and more suited to the sleepy lull of a live set, gliding through four minutes of overlapping melodies and emotional vocals. Mica Levi, who guests on the track under her Micachu alias, is a London-based producer and DJ whose virtuosic ability earned her a nomination for the Best Original Score Academy Award for her contribution to the 2016 film Jackie. Always experimental in her take on writing, she makes an excellent foil for the texture-loving Mount Kimbie duo.
Mount Kimbie play at Bristol’s Motion on Thursday 2nd November, playing live at the West country warehouse space and potentially showing off more new tracks as they road test a brand new album.
