Disclosure have shared another brand new track with the world ahead of their upcoming LP Caracal, this time tapping the vocal skills of London-based vocalist Brenden Reilly. Dubbed “Moving Mountains,” the track is perhaps the most relaxed and ethereal Disclosure release to date, with only a few measures of steady drums interrupting its seaside drift. Reilly’s clear, emotive vocals weave in and out of synthesizers as the entire song steadily crescendoes, breaking wide open at its four-minute mark into warbling sirens and deep bass. Still, this is a softer, more contemplative Disclosure than we’ve ever heard before, and “Moving Mountains” could very well serve as the halfway breath-catching moment on an album loaded with dancefloor fire.
Contemplating it alongside other Caracal tracks, including “Holding On” and “Bang That,” “Moving Mountains” sounds more patient and mature; the slackened tempo and veer away from house drums and hi-hats is certainly a welcome change from a band that’s primarily only ever offered variations on a single theme. The track made its world premiere on BBC Radio 1 courtesy of Annie Mac, and you can listen to it online here. The fun starts at roughly 1:29:40.
Caracal is due out on September 25th. Pre-order it on iTunes today.
