Did you know it’s been near more than 30 years since the beginnings of the trip-hop movement? No? Well, it’s time to discover some absolute pioneers! Morcheeba. The trio-turned duet is still here, bringing soulful music to our grey days. They celebrate the big 10th album with a new track, ‘The Moon’, this week.
Rediscovering Other Cultures
Morcheeba hops from one experience to one another, and it radiates such diversity within their music. Curious and eclectic? They’ve got the right moods for you! On their forthcoming album Blackest Blue, Skye Edwards, and Ross Godfrey explore different parts of the world. Fancy deep freediving in Thailand? ‘Sounds Of Blue’ is the definite soundscape that will take you there, chilling in the water with confidence. Want to discover your roots? A surprise collaboration with Duke Garwood and Brad Barr (from Canadian rock band The Barr Brothers) will crush your bones.
While landing on ‘The Moon,’ Morcheeba revisits an original song from Croatia, written by Irina Žilić. Yet makes this version all their own. How? Skye Edwards added a verse and musically added their trip-hop source of inspiration. Like a witch, the vocals haunt us with dark bass tones. She delivers some big cinematic grooves to contrast with the folk vibes of the original and voilà! The rework is an entirely new song, with all the magic!
Got The Blues?
‘The Moon’ is one of various imaginative covers that you can enjoy from Morcheeba. As a blast from the past, we also suggest you listen to their rendition of Tommy James and The Shondell’s ‘Crystal Blue Persuasion’ or Abbie Mitchell’s ‘Summertime.’
