North American tour dates for Maribou State and more!

Just this past June, Maribou State released their newest piece of work the full length, Portraits on Counter Records. However, there has been nothing but action for this fantastically creative electronic musician. After touring the new album this summer, a couple of weeks ago it was announced that Maribou State would be joining BBC Radio 1 Residency, extremely exciting news for them.

Only yesterday, they announced North American tour dates:

AND..there’s more. Right now, you can enjoy a mixtape hand crafted by THUMP and Maribou State. Chris Davids and Liam Ivory had this to say about the mixtape titled “Sound of Eight Cities“:

“Ahead of our DJ tour to the US, we decided to create a mix that’s composed of music which originates from all the places we are visiting, as well as a couple of artists that are now residing in those cities! We’ve also peppered the mix with field recordings from our recent travels across the pond.”

Finally, you can now PRE-ORDER Portraits Remix 12″ which features remixes by Breaker Breaker, Purp & Soul and others. To remind you of what’s in store on this remix edition, have a listen to the track I posted last week:

A Friday Treat! New track, “The Clown”, by Maribou State.

Good luck trying to sit still to this song. I’m listening to it right now while I’m typing and the uncontrollable bouncing of my feet and slight sway in my upper body is making it hard to type. Maribou State is Chris Davids and Liam Ivory who started their musical journey at university in Leeds in England. Now a well reputed music-making duo, Maribou is known for their ability to weave together soulful sounds, electronic beats and morphed vocals. Their newest album, ‘Portraits’, is due out this June 2nd.

Check out the latest release, “The Clown (ft Pedestrian)”:
