Saturday Sounds : Unknown Mortal Orchestra : Can’t Keep Checking My Phone

Music, Saturday Sounds

Saturday Sounds this week features a New Zealand / American outfit.  Unknown Mortal Orchestra are a classy indie group with a laid back sound, yet are an addictive listen. They’re fronted by  Ruban Nielson.  Kiwis may remember his prior incarnation in The Mint Chicks that blasted into the stratosphere for a brief moment in time.

This track is funky in a low key way with the theme of the song a problem common to many in this day and age. If you like Tame Impala you will probably love this and it’s the sort of music you can play at a dinner party without causing offence, yet won’t be boring background music. The album Multi-Love will be released on May 26th.

Here’s the audio.
