Hailing from Munich, Le Millipede came to wider attention last summer when his wonderful self-titled debut album came out. Largely the work of multi-instrumentalist Mathias Götz, Le Millipede crafts beautiful pop melodies with a plethora of instruments including piano, xylophone, trumpet, glockenspiel, Moog synthesizers, a harmonium, and several percussion instruments. His live performances come to life with the help of friends Micha and Markus Acher (The Notwist / Tied & Tickled Trio), Cico Beck (Aloa Input) and Stefan Dittlein (Karl Hector and the Malcouns).
Le Millipede is ready to follow his debut album later this month with a 7″ single, featuring two brand new marvellous tracks, ‘Neue Welt’ and ‘Lenity’.
Today, Cast the Dice is thrilled to unveil his new video for ‘Neue Welt’. The track opens with the enigmatic and joyous sounds of a clarinet and piano, before a rising trumpet, alongside Le Millipede’s characteristic percussion, transports the listener to a cinematic world. ‘Neue Welt’ builds up gently turning into a mad and explosive affair towards the end.
Neue Welt’/’Lenity’ is out on January 22nd via Alien Transistor. Now press play and drift away.
