“Semicircle Song” by The Go! Team

The Go! Team’ full-length SEMICIRCLE comes out January 19th via Memphis Industries. The UK group recently premiered their video for “Semicircle Song,” which features guest vocals from members of the Detroit Youth Choir”. For SEMICIRCLE, the Brighton-based, melody-obsessed Ian Parton had the vision of a marching band going rogue and chucking away their sheet music to blast out Northern soul stompers, Japanese indie-pop swooners and old-school hip hop jams. But his extensive sample library could only take him so far. So Ian made a pilgrimage to Detroit — city of Motown and The Stooges, of musical (and actual) revolution — where he hooked up with The Detroit Youth Choir. “Mayday” and “Semicircle Song” are two of the resulting collaborations.
