Maribou State – “Blue Sunday”

I’ve always enjoyed Maribou State‘s musical output.

All of Chris Davids and Liam Ivory’s sonic productions maintain a steady, consistent groove throughout, but what sets them far apart from other electronic acts in their field are their carefully chosen samples and blended synth sounds that give each song an unexpected depth, height, and ocean of emotion. Once more with feeling, indeed.

Some of their tracks that have worked their way onto my radio show over the years include “Scarlett Groove,” Jason Burns’ remix of their track “Got Me Down,” and their remix of Submotion Orchestra’s “Blindspot.”

The latest song from these two London producers, “Blue Sunday,” isn’t, as I first thought, an interpolation of New Order’s venerable “Blue Monday.” It does however bounce along quite nicely, aided by balloon-like synths, choral echoes, and a cyclical, key-jangling beat.
