Icelandic experimental-pop collective múm have debuted a new 7-inch single, ‘Toothwheels,’ taken from their forthcoming album, Smilewound, out September 17 on Morr Music. The video for the single is a jigsaw collaboration between múm, Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson & Bruno Granato.
Following their 2009 album, Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know, the band’s fourth effort shows the juxtaposing of two conflicting meanings, taking advantage of the energy created through the tension between both. Sparser in sound than many of its predecessors, it’s an airy, relaxed record. múm’s capability to build playful electronic sound-ornaments around simple melodies is in full bloom, and these days they know that trimming the ornamentation can strengthen the melody. It’s no wonder antipodean pop-princess Kylie Minogue wanted to collaborate with them on ‘Whistle,’ the main song in 2012 film Jack & Diane, and were hand-picked by Brian Eno to attend last years’s edition of Norway’s Punkt Festival.
