Mount Kimbie announce their new album The Sunset Violent, releasing via Warp on April 5th. Along with the news, the band have shared album track “Fishbrain” with an accompanying video directed by Tegen Williams. The band worked with previously on the video for “Blue Train Lanes (ft. King Krule).” Inspired by the charcoal animations of South African artist William Kentridge, the video centers around a dystopian tale of an underground fish-scale textile factory and the mundane repetitive nature of the toil of everyday life and the labor of industry.

The Sunset Violent is the follow-up to their last studio album, 2017’s Love What Survives left off, an album that blends indie, shoegaze and electronica. The album was written in California’s Yucca Valley, a scant Western town with a history of alleged UFO sightings before being finished in London.
