Since first emerging on the scene at the start of the decade, Maribou State had remained a full prolific outfit. Releasing new music on an almost yearly basis, the band then finally unveiled their incredible debut album 'Portraits' back in 2015. And since then, things have been uncharacteristically quiet for the duo. But after many years on the road, both touring and personal journeys, the band have brought their new world concept into their latest material as they return with their kaleidoscopic sophomore full-length 'Kingdom In Colour'.
From the start, it is clear as to how much influence the world traveling has had on this new release. Channeling the diverse vibes of a series of multinational influences, 'Kingdom In Colour' manages to adopt the blissful, lo-fi sound the band had already perfected, and spread itself out into a diverse range of cultural eccentricity. This seems like an album ready to celebrate the world and all its inspirations, as the pair seem reinvigorated on this new material, keeping the energy high and the diverse nature of their productions moving ever forward.
Maribou State have always been part of the forefront of forward-thinking electronica, but this seems very much like the next level for them. Wonderfully crafted and serene in its atmosphere, this new material feels like the beginning of a new evolution for the pair, and one we hope continues for years to come.
