Following two critically acclaimed albums, 'Finest Hour' and 'Fragments', Submotion Orchestra return bigger, brighter and bolder than ever with 'Alium', their first album for Counter Records.
The band have announced a full European headline tour kicking off in November in support of the album - including a soon to be sold out date at The Forum in London - with a busy festival schedule already underway, having touched down at Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and Beacons, with Outlook in Croatia and more to come.
Notable fans include Bondax, Alex Clare, LTJ Bukem, Phaeleh, Araabmuzik, Young Jeezy, Jamie Cullum, Pete Tong, Lauren Laverne, Huey (The Huey Show), Don Letts and Mistajam.
Since forming in Leeds in 2009 Submotion Orchestra have released two critically acclaimed albums, 'Finest Hour' and 'Fragments'. The 7 piece band's fusion of bass heavy electronica, jazz, soul and much more besides has made them a favourite of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Trevor Nelson and Jo Whiley amongst others, whilst their live show has seen them play festivals around the world and sell out venues such as London's famous KOKO.

Ruby Wood whose cool presence, together with string and brass instrumentalists,
contribute a humane dimension to their otherwise contemporary electronic shtick.
There are a dozen pieces in the set. Sometimes things get a tad rumbustious as
in opening track 'Awakening' which lumbers along on the back of a chattering
synth riff and sports a melancholy trumpet line which would make a tidy theme
tune for an as yet unmade BBC TV series, very probably featuring the redoubtable
Idris Elba; at other moments inventions such as the very lovely 'City Lights' and
'Life After' put a foot on the brakes and allows Ms Wood's elegant voice to shine
through. Indeed, the especially beautiful 'Swan Song' is among the prettiest songs
I have heard this year. The moody 'Bring Back The Wolf' (I never went away!),
an instrumental which again nudges soundtrack territory, is the icing on the cake.
Every which way 'Alium' is an admirable recording.
