Three years after The Scene Between, The Go! Team today announced their new album Semicircle will be released on January 19th, 2018 on Memphis Industries. They shared the first single titled “Semicircle Song“ and the official video.
Co-directed by Team leader Ian Parton along with his neighbor Bosie Vincent, the video was partially filmed during the album recording sessions in Detroit and features several guest singers of The Detroit Youth Choir. As Ian explains: “We were looking to make something that takes the marching band feel of the song and puts it through a kaleidoscope – something trippy and Technicolor, making geometry out of everyday patterns. I found this marching band in Jacksonville who had the best bright purple and red costumes and we arranged to film with them just a week before the floods hit. The vocals for “Semicircle Song” were recorded in Detroit with a bunch of teenagers who we were filming as they were singing – so the footage in the video were the actual takes that made it onto the record.”
