Maribou State are an English electronic duo comprised of Chris Davids and Liam Ivory. Three years after Portraits, they’re back with a new track. “Turnmills” is out now via Counter Records. Their words about it: “Turnmills was where we first experienced electronic music in a club setting. It’s a totally different and transformative listening experience and that communal spirit, atmosphere and feeling has inspired the way we’ve made music,” says Liam. “Clubs are such important hubs for music discovery, especially of songs that you might have overlooked in a different setting. Partly through the feeling in the room and also through the memories attached to the records you hear.”

Chris continues: “We wrote ‘Turnmills’ the day after a Dama Dama label party at the East London club Shapes (shut down in 2016). Our studio is housed in the same building actually… Anyway the vibe of the night brought back memories of our formative clubbing experiences and that energy ended up being channeled straight back into the studio the next day.”
