The Comet Is Coming

HYPER-DIMENSIONAL EXPANSION BEAM

    The Comet is Coming returns with their second full length album on Impulse! Records. King Shabaka, Danalogue, and Betamax’s newest effort finds the Mercury Prize-nominated trio creating a musical landscape that is equally cerebral as it is physically enthralling. While containing elements of jazz throughout, this release leans further into heavy dance-hall themes, providing hypnotic, electronic soundscapes to dance to while keeping you intellectually stimulated.

    On Trust In The Life Force Of The Deep Mystery, the Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted futurist jazz voyagers The Comet Is Coming are making music for these crisis times of chaos and mass meltdown. The title of the album, the band say, concerns “finding meaning in that which you cannot grasp”, it considers “truth in the existence of a primordial energy”. It asks “What does it mean to be human? The music on the trio’s second record, out on impulse! in March 2019, fluctuates between pulsating, danceable, electronic groove-centric pieces and quieter, melodic jazz-infused compositions.

    The Comet Is Coming are: Danalogue (keyboards/electronics), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone).

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Millie says: Comet is Coming have sparked electricity with their new album, high energy jazz and a mixture of everything in between, hints of electronic and melodic interludes woven in masterfully. The trio are channeling existential questions and ideology but have certainly nailed their cosmic jazz sound, that’s for certain!
