Interview: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Feeling More Ambitious
Without a doubt one of the world’s most-watched rising stars Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s Ruban sat down with the Music Feeds team prior to hitting the stage at Sydney’s The Standard.
Part Kiwi, Part American, Unknown Mortal Orchestra has an international appeal even at its most basic level, though following the release of the self-titled album, the outfit managed to steal the attention of fans the world over for many more reasons. Australians, in particular seem to have taken a shining to the group. As Ruben puts it, the band feel more accepted here than they do in New Zealand.
The loyal following now waits with baited breath for their follow-up release II. Already we’ve heard Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark), the first warning shot off the release. We’ll have to wait until Feb 1st to suss out the vibe of the release of the album, which the band let grow as organically as possible.
Next Stop – the rest of the world. UMO will be taking the new album all over the planet but will be sure to return Down Under with their new goods.
