The Independent review SMD’s Barbican Show

Simian Mobile Disco Barbican Review

The Independent have written a glowing review of Simian Mobile Disco’s ‘Murmurations’ show at the Barbican last week, along with the Deep Throat Choir.

“There are two distinct components: the 27 women of Deep Throat Choir, whose ethereal tones and murmurs weave within one another; and then, standing in front them, there is James Ford and Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, spinning dark, hypnotic beats. But, at the times when it all comes together, they move as one musical creature.”
