The Chemical Brothers take us back to the rave era with new single ‘MAH’ taken from the forthcoming album ‘No Geography’ set for release in Spring 2019.
Probably the most influencing electronic duo of the past 20 years, The Chemical Brothers have been doing their own thing since the release of their first album, the iconic “Exit Planet Dust”, without caring much about the transient trends in the dance music scene.
Seven albums later, the British duo is ready to deploy another long-play, “No Geography“, set for the release in Spring 2019. The usual procedure wants the artists to release at least a couple of singles before the full album drops, so we had “Free Yourself” in Fall 2018, and now “MAH“.
The new track, an incredible acid rave weapon, comes with a visual filmed at the band’s recent sold-out London shows at Alexandra Palace. The reaction of the crowd at the drop of “MAH” is just crazy, like a liberating reaction to the disturbing visual.
The new single, together with “Free Yourself”, is a return to Rowlands & Simon’s ravey past, and represents a firm turn from the more pop-ish sound of “Born In The Echoes”. Given these two singles, we expect a raw electronic album from the Chem’s, but deep down we know that they’re going to surprise us – as usual.
“MAH” in less than a week has totalized more than 200k streams on Spotify and more than half a million on YouTube. Already played on BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix by Pete Tong, “MAH” has already raised the standard for the upcoming album that, with these premises, it will be just amazing.
