"Timeaway" fuses bubbling drum machines, chromatic percussion and electronic vocal effects into a sublime piece of avant-garde pop music. The perfect introduction to the ornate sonic surroundings of their eagerly awaited forthcoming album, due February 4th on Warp. The single's release was preceded by a handful of intimate UK live shows, the band's first in over a year, which brilliantly showcased their new material.
