Chemical Brothers release “Mah” single
Further to the announcement of their 2019 tour, The Chemical Brothers have promo’d a visual filmed at the band’s recent sold-out London shows at Alexandra Palace, with the new live favourite track “MAH”. Along with being released digitally, “MAH” will also be released as a limited 12” vinyl – a double A-side with their previous single, “Free Yourself”.
Directed by Marcus Lyall and featuring visuals created by Adam Smith & Marcus, the clip captures a taste of the band’s live spectacle, viewed as a significantly regarded performance by live music fans.
“MAH” follows “Free Yourself” which was released in Autumn with an incredible music video directed by long-time collaborators Dom & Nic.
In 2015, the duo – comprising Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons – released their Grammy nominated album, Born In The Echoes, which featured collaborations with such artists as Q-Tip, St. Vincent and Beck, videos from the Oscar-winning director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, The Green Hornet) and award winning director duo Dom&Nic (Oasis, David Bowie & Trent Reznor, Supergrass), plus experimentation in virtual reality with Chris Milk. Pitchfork praised Born In The Echoes as “some of the best pure pop songs Rowlands and Simons have ever made”.
NME declared it:
“A bold reinvention of the Chemical Brothers’ sound.”
The Chemical Brothers have sold more than 12 million albums and six million singles worldwide. They have had six No. 1 albums in the U.K. and were the first electronic act ever to receive a Grammy, winning in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category for “Block Rockin’ Beats” – the first of their four Grammy wins.
