about

Electronic pop fruitcakes múm return with a new single, before coming up with a whole new album later in 2013. The A-side "Toothwheels" starts off with echoes of their millenium-era rhythms, which morph into shadows (reminiscent of their foggy masterpiece 'Summer Make Good'). Flourishing strings and teeming arpeggios elevate the track, that spins along in a cyclical motion before it is being washed away in a tide of abstraction. The lulling vocals disguise the songs fatalistic lyrics, evoking an eerie sense of immateriality. B-side's tune "Cranes Like Ships" is again built around booming electronic beats and confused synthesizers, but it's a much happier affair.
