Ibibio Sound Machine return with new single 'Electricity'

Following on from their brilliant 2019 studio album 'Doko Mien', Ibibio Sound Machine have returned once again to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Electricity' marks their first piece of new material in two years, and also features additional production from Hot Chip.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Eno Williams said, "Even in trying times, "without love, there’s no electricity". This one started out as an idea to mix Afrobeat with Giorgio Moroder–style synth vibes. The end section with Alfred’s korego (Ghanaian 2-stringed folk guitar) solo was already there when we got into the studio, but then we added the big kick drum that happens underneath and Owen from Hot Chip’s crazy drum machine percussion at the end, which gave it a futuristic Afro feel when mixed with the more talking drum parts."
