Obsessing Over Life & Music | Simian Mobile Disco- ‘Serpahim’ [Official Music Video]

I guess everyone has their own little quirks and obsessions that make them unique. I can’t really think of any major quirks I have, except the occasional tendency to bite (okay, more like nibble) my tongue when I’m nervous or randomly scratch a surface (yeah, random…)

People have little things they do that make them who they are, and sometimes we also have things we obsess over, including music. So when I first watched Simian Mobile Disco’s music video for “Seraphim,” I could easily figure out the overall message. Yet some people were unclear what the message was, so Simian Mobile Disco explained their video in a Youtube comment.

“Since people are asking – It’s a series of scenes of people going over their obsessive-compulsive type behaviours… as to how that refers to our music, on our new album we’ve been inspired by ideas of repeated loops and patterns breaking down and decaying over time. And the process of making electronic music lends itself to obsessive-compulsive tendencies..”

I love how they were able to bring forth a video based upon an abstract concept, yet it still makes awe inspiring sense.

The video for “Seraphim” just came out yesterday, and it’s a great indication of what we can expect on their upcoming album Unpatterns. Life is essentially filled with so many loops and patterns, yet the arrangement can change depending on a variety of factors.

Essentially, life is mundane, repetitive, and routine based. But it’s the little things we do, our little obsessions, our quirks, and our habit to switch one thing in a routine that can take a dull moment and turn it into something exciting. If not exciting, well then at least worthwhile. But at the end of the day, life is all about patterns, but thoseunpatterns” make it count.

Oh, might as well throw in Simian Mobile Disco’s newly released track off their upcoming EP Unpatterns, “Put Your Hands Together.”

And, while I’m at it….Haha I just love sharing cool stuff with y’all. I might as well post their video “Cerulean” which came out a few weeks ago.

Seraphim | An Exclusive New Release from Simian Mobile Disco

The months are just kind of flying by quickly, and I just came to the realization that I should seriously start planning my 21st birthday. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do, but I know it will have to involve house. If I can’t get house, then I’ll enjoy going crazy to some insanely good dance music.

There are a few spots in DC that my brother has told me about, and they are known for playing some nice house & dance music. I’m excited about finally going out and exploring D.C., and actually being able to get into the 21+ venues. But one thing I’m looking forward to the most is seeing the UK duo Simian Mobile Disco perform live May 23rd @ U Street Music Hall. If you haven’t been to U Street Music Hall before, then check it out. Most of the events are 18+ and they have some awesome concerts.

Simian Mobile Disco is one of my favorite electronic duos, and I’m stoked about their forthcoming album, Unpatterns. They released a teaser of their new track “Seraphim” a few days ago, but now they exclusively played the song on Annie Mac’s Radio Show. I figured we’d have to wait for another month until we had the honor of listening to the track, but Simian Mobile Disco understood how anxious their fans would be; playing the song exclusive on the radio was enough to keep fans from banging their doors down & demanding for more details on the new album.

I really love the new track. It has a nice quality to it that makes Simian Mobile Disco such an awesome duo, and I’m really hoping their new album will have another collab with Beth Ditto. “Cruel Intentions” is such a good track, so hopefully Beth will grace yet another SMD track. *fingers crossed*


Just in the spirit of lovingSimian Mobile Disco, I’ll go ahead & post some of their other tracks I love.

Cruel Intentions ft Beth Ditto

I Believe
