Yet another unique musical angle from the British outfit that has
elevated our excitement for the new project even higher.

Last week Mount Kimbie announced the release of their third album, Love What Survives along with a stream of “Blue Train Lines” (featuring King Krule). The accompanying video clip, directed by Raf Fellner and Tegen Williams, features Frank Lebon, who has creative directed all visuals for the album, and is an ode to Ishi, the last of the Yahi people.

The Blue Train Lines video is a fictional re-creation of two Anthropologists (Robert. F. H and Theadora. K played by Raf. F and Tegen. W) who have been called in by the authorities to study a man they seem to believe is the last of the Yahi of California. 

Upon stumbling into civilisation in 1910 the man unknowingly became the life’s work and obsession of a pair of human scientists who housed and cared for him while they studied his every move.

However, the story takes a turn when the pair fall out and one of them tries to sell all his belongings on eBay. Luckily, the buyer, who goes by the name ‘Frank. L’, acquires all of the wild man’s things, only to reinvest them back into further studies in a tale exploring the lines between student, teacher, collaborator, scientist, historian and friend. Rest in peace Ishi.”

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 BlakeMicachu and King Krule, within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album.
