Groove Armada 'Edge of the Horizon' 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 2nd October.
After a ten year spell back in the house underground, Groove Armada's Tom Findlay and Andy Cato are back with the eleven-track ‘Edge Of The Horizon'. As with all Groove Armada LP's it's a melting pot of styles, but in contrast to the guitar laden sound of the Grammy nominated album “Black Light”, the uniting stylistic thread here lies somewhere between Hall and Oates , Prince and Roxy Music. Groove Armada’s flair for blending electro elements with the energy of a live band remains at the heart of the record. In fact the foundations of this album are the memories of the 15 years they spent on the road playing dance music live. The legendary GA tour bus parties had a strong dose of yacht rock on the playlist. ‘Holding Strong’ is an unashamed salute to the best of those searing emotional highs of the 80s. NYCs She Keeps Bees heads up the title track , born out of a groove left on the cutting room floor during the chaotic Black Light sessions. With three UK Top 10 hits, three Grammy nominations and a succession of seminal classics under their belt, Groove Armada are one of the most influential forces in dance music. The next chapter in Groove Armada history begins with the October release of ‘Edge of the Horizon’ and continues when these tunes are transformed into live dance music in that way that only Grove Armada can.
