Since forming in Leeds in 2009 Submotion Orchestra have carved out their own special place in the UK’s ever-changing musical landscape. Now following two albums, Finest Hour and Fragments, Submotion Orchestra return bigger, and bolder than ever with Alium; their first album for Counter Records. Released on November 4th, Alium sees the band in an expansive mood as the interplay between their electronic and acoustic sounds has become more natural than ever, whilst Ruby Wood’s vocals continue to find new levels of emotion.
Written over two years in the remote Welsh countryside with just ‘passing sheep and a rusty ping-pong table for company’ and recorded in Brighton, Alium has been a true group effort with every band member involved in the writing and recording process, something that is reflected in the album’s varied nature.
With a busy summer schedule that will see the band play over a dozen festivals in 7 different countries and a full UK tour lined up for later in the year.
UPCOMING SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA LIVE DATES:
