The brilliantly inventive combo The Comet Is Coming has released the video for their astonishing single ‘Summon The Fire’. The wild, addictive track is taken from the band’s second album ‘Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery’, which is out now via Impulse! Records.
According to the trio, the LP’s intriguing title refers to “finding meaning in that which you cannot grasp, truth in the existence of primordial energy”. With music that absorbs sci-fi influences, hard electronic grooves and melodic, jazz-infused flavours, The Comet Is Coming are made up of Danalogue (keyboards/electronics), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone). Danaolgue and Betamax are also members of Soccer96.
”The name of the group comes from a BBC Radiophonic Workshop piece of the same name. Once we heard this piece, with its allusions to sci-fi, cosmic remembrances and general space, it instantly struck a chord. We’re exploring new sound worlds and aiming to destroy all musical ideals which are unfit for our purposes so the name stuck.” The London-based group’s 2016 debut album ‘Channel the Spirits’ was nominated for the Mercury Prize.
