The theory of 'Dark Flow' suggests some structure beyond our visible universe - hinting at myriad other worlds outside our limited "horizon". It’s a controversial idea that fascinates Bombay Monkey, a band who like to create their own musical multiverse.
Their new album ‘Dark Flow’ is a heady mixture of disparate styles: electronic dub meets Eighties synth pop with a slice of Exotica, wrapped in a cinematic production that’s infused with quirky humour and a deceptive pop sensibility.
The supercharged drum’n’bass of ‘Monkey See Monkey Do’ recalls the similarly simian-obsessed German technocrats Modeselektor while the slow, moody ‘King of the Jungle’ bears a marked dubstep influence. There’s more obvious leanings towards pop too, from the playful humour of ‘It’s Not My Dog’ to the sun-kissed ‘Istanbul Dub’, a gleeful deconstruction of the 1953 Jimmy Kennedy / Nat Simon swing classic.
