Submotion Orchestra
Alium Mini-Mix

“Alium” is the eagerly anticipated album from boundary-pushing Submotion Orchestra. Renowned for their spectacular live performances the seven-piece have captivated the public along with Trevor Nelson and Jo Wiley, as well as touring the world, selling out venues such as London’s famous KOKO. It is clear to see that a lot of time and effort went into the creation of ‘Alium’, after all the finished product is simply mind blowing.

Bringing together a number of sounds, both from their electronic and acoustic side, the music created is one of a kind. The vocal performances from Ruby are strong as ever, with stunning writing, the delicate textures just blossom around the rest of the band. Heavier songs such as “Chrome Units” see the group raise the energy levels with punchy electro synths echoing throughout the duration whilst other follow suit, growing and developing around the main body. What Submotion Orchestra do so well is let their creations develop over time, with each song telling a story as the music around it gradually builds letting the energy levels lap up and down with emotion.

“Alium” is certainly up there with the top albums of the year. Through beautiful writing and musicianship, alongside a polished finished of flawless levels of production this sound is one to stand out from a crowd. You can purchase the album here.
