Finally, nearly three years later, we are on the precipice of the release of their fourth album What Went Down, due out August 28th on Warner Music. To whet our appetite, earlier today they debuted the video for “Mountain At My Gates” a fantastic alt-rocker produced by James Ford of Arctic Monkeys and Florence + the Machine fame.
“I’d recorded the beginning riff on my phone ages ago,” explained vocalist/guitarist Yannis Philippakis in an NME interview. “At the beginning it had a baggy feel, but became less so with more work. The central image – “I see a mountain at my gates” was from me getting more interested in seeing what would come out lyrically where there wasn’t a pre-conceived idea. Normally I write voraciously in books and journals, then harvest a lot of that for the record. This, though, came out instantaneously in the room.”
