Soundcrash Presents: Submotion Orchestra
Since their inception in 2009, the genre-defying Submotion Orchestra have moved seamlessly between deep electronica, jazz, soul and ambient downtempo, mesmerising audiences from Iceland to India. Their unique music is at once delicate and heavy, spacious and dense, highly atmospheric but firmly rooted. Earth-shaking bass and drums combine with lush keyboard and trumpet textures to create the perfect backdrop for the fragile beauty of Ruby Wood’s vocals, and the celestial effects of producer Ruckspin.
The group’s reputation for stunning live performances grew with further UK and European tours, headlining the 6,000-capacity Pula amphitheater at the Outlook festival and sold-out shows at the Barbican Theatre (for the London Jazz Festival) and The Forum. Their song Perfection was sampled for Young Jeezy’s Seen it All album, which went to number 2 in the US album charts, whilst Bryson Tiller’s monster hit Right My Wrongs made memorable use of All Yours. Instrumental EP III moved their sound to more electronic realms, whilst critically-acclaimed fourth album Colour Theory found the band collaborating with artists such as Royce Wood Jr., Andrew Ashong and Catching Flies, with their momentum reaching a notable peak with a headline show at the legendary Royal Albert Hall.
Submotion Orchestra’s latest studio album Kites saw the band gloriously return to the smoky, jazz infused electronica which made Finest Hour the cult record that it has now become. 2019 celebrates 10 years of Submotion Orchestra. After all these years their music and live performances have become iconic - brimming with honesty, integrity and beauty.
