The latest addition to the NINJA TUNE family is fantastic Mercury-nominated band THE INVISIBLE.
For the last six years band members Dave Okumu, Tom Herbert (bass & synthesizer) and Leo Taylor (drums) have been working together as THE INVISIBLE. The product of their work was their self-titled début which was nominated for the 2009 Mercury Music Prize.
THE INVISIBLE‘s boundless approach to arrangement flows effortlessly between the texturally rich and the rhythm heavy, the ethereal and the visceral, taking in unique and subtle electronic dancefloor.
Their below track ‘Protection’ is a lo-fi filled beauty that resonated a liking to the nu-jazz works of Brainfeeder’s Thundercat with deviations into experimental rock.
The band’s upcoming second album ‘Rispah‘ will be released 11 June 2012.
