Submotion Orchestra present Blind Spot - the second single taken from the London/Leeds-based seven piece's eagerly-anticipated second album Fragments.
Last year Submotion Orchestra released their debut LP Finest Hour. It lead to widespread media praise, an army of fervent fans, rapturous festival shows worldwide and sold-out headline gigs, including London's Scala.

Blind Spot signals big things for Submotion Orchestra's next chapter. Following the stylistic dancefloor shift of last single It's Not Me It's You, this new single swings the pendulum back to the lush and expansive sound that made the band's name. It takes what was already a sweepingly cinematic blueprint and goes one step bigger and better, both musically and sonically.

The contrast between this track and It's Not Me It's You also highlights how the band have grown from their deubt: Fragments moves coherently between more styles than before, marking a broader palate of influences seeping into their output.

A curious blend of melancholy and subtly rising euphoria, Blind Spot fuses the band's previous smoky and at times dense sound with a brighter, more pristine and summery optimism. It simultaneously maintains their signature mix of big bass, drums, piano/synth, strings, brass and Ruby's sumptuous vocals - all finding their perfectly-audible place in the mix.

"There are things that should both satisfy fans of the first album, and surprise them too," says Submotion keyboardist Taz Modi of Fragments. Watch this space to hear for yourself very soon.
