Stateless – Ariel


Continuing my binge on Ninja Tune is this front-page feature on their site (ninjatune.net). Their newest single release is from Stateless, an English band from Leeds, called Ariel. The single itself actually isn’t out ’till November 22 and the album it’s from, Matilda, isn’t due out until the distant future of February but you can download the Dark Sky remix of the single (which is good, but not as good as the album cut) from their {website}.

The single has an electronic bent, but its inclusion of African guitars and steel drums give it a worldly feel. The dark beats and lead singer Chris James’ vocals make the song the kind of affair that Ninja Tune put outs best. If you’re reading this and the sun’s out, come back after dark.
