Love What Survives is the long awaited third studio album from Mount Kimbie. It’s the most confident statement of intent from the boundary-pushing duo yet, and an embodiment of their career-long musical progression. Blue Train Lines demonstrates the progression and evolutionary journey the band have embarked on since the release of 2013’s Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. The track centers on a motorik rhythm section, heightened and enhanced by long-time collaborator and friend King Krule’s jagged vocal bursts and pulsing synths.
The album is the product of three years of intense creative development, continually honed by the duo writing and rewriting their ideas to form something wholly idiosyncratic and personal. It brings together the voices of their close friends and collaborators - who together represent a corner of the UK’s young artistic talent - James Blake, Micachu and King Krule, within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album.
