Maribou State - "The Clown" (feat. Pedestrian)
Yesterday afternoon I sent a song a friend of mine with whom I often share music and her first reaction after listening to it was to ask if I was having an afternoon dance party at work. At first I was a little confused, but after giving the track a few more listens I totally saw where she was coming from. Upon my first listen of "The Clown" (the song in question) from the UK's Maribou State I was drawn to the dark tones and distant vocals of Pedestrian. After my friend's reaction, I started tuning in to the other components, especially the deep, driving beat that persists throughout the entire track. How I managed to miss that on the first go-around is beyond me, but now that it's there I can't help but start moving as soon as I hit play.
"The Clown" is taken from Maribou State's upcoming debut LP, Portraits, due out July 1st. Pre-order your copy here.
