Belgian experimental collective Under the Reefs Orchestra return with a brand new release “Ants.” The lasted single off their forthcoming album due this September through Capitane Records. The track combines space rock oddity, peppered with jazz and kraut rock influences

The band say: “‘Ants’ Follows our first single ‘Sakurajima’ (whose name come from the famous Japanese volcano), this new track is equally eruptive, but with perhaps even more shimmering sonic colours. It is a dialogue with the saxophone of Marti Melia and alternates between hot and cold moments, between sultry swells and feverish accents. The music sounds like the orchestration of a great climactic event, as if both musicians on the Titanic and the drowning passengers were all making music in concert.”

“Ants” is accompanied by a spectacular live session shot on a rooftop in Brussels just a few days ago. Under The Reefs Orchestra perform an incandescent versions of ‘Ants’ along with another title to be released track ‘Heliodrome’. Directed by Kevin Antoine and François Dubois.

Based in Brussels and led by guitarist Clément Nourry, the group also includes saxophonist Marti Melia and drummer Jakob Warmenbol, both of them members of the punk jazz band Don Kapot. These three musicians have worked extensively throughout the kenetic Brussels music scene, and bring their individual voices together in an improvised and free form style.
