After coming off a hugely successful sell-out tour last month, London/Leeds seven piece Submotion Orchestra has released the video for new single It’s Not Me It’s You, and it’s pretty ace. It features awesome camera work displaying close-ups of many instruments, a woman covered in tribal stuff, oh and the singer Ruby busting out a few shapes too.
It’s Not Me It’s You has a certain reverb quality to it that makes it sound quite earthy, which I believe is what the band’s sound was on the debut album. This time however, it’s been paired against some addictive bass, catchy synthesisers and sliced up vocals to help it sound nightclub and mainstream friendly. It also features some pretty slinky trumpet action too which fits in really well with the slightly relaxed atmosphere.
It’s a great track and I can’t wait to hear how the rest of the new album sounds, especially if Submotion Orchestra has managed to pull off this progressively radio-friendly sound well.
