Stateless - I'm On Fire - out on Ninja Tune



Stateless Im On Fire
Stateless - I'm On Fire
(Digital Single) Ninja Tune ZENDNLS290, 2011-09-19

Stateless return with the 3rd EP from their sophomore album, Matilda. In the summer of 2008 Stateless were doing a TV show in Manchester when they happened across the amazing talent of Shara Worden, who was promoting her latest My Brightest Diamond project. Quick to spot her potential, Stateless mainman Chris James subsequently jumped on a plane for Brooklyn to record a duet he'd written especially for her. After a brief series of face to face, live takes, it became apparent that they had stumbled across something magical. The song was transfixing, with the kind of pace and emotional pitch that cuts to the nerve. As a part of the Damian Taylor "Matilda" sessions the track was given some electro resonance, Gillian Wood's strings added a lushness. The band's Kidkanevil sculpted the arrangement into the climactic piece we release today. The EP comes with the type of progressive electronic mixes we have come to expect from Stateless courtesy of Blue Daisy and new Ninja signee Slugabed as well as a wholly new track...

Press Release :
Stateless return with the 3rd EP from their sophomore album, "Matilda". In the summer of 2008 Stateless were doing a TV show in Manchester when they happened across the amazing talent of Shara Worden, who was promoting her latest My Brightest Diamond project. Quick to spot her potential, Stateless mainman Chris James subsequently jumped on a plane for Brooklyn to record a duet he'd written especially for her. After a brief series of face to face, live takes, it became apparent that they had stumbled across something magical. The song was transfixing, with the kind of pace and emotional pitch that cuts to the nerve. As a part of the Damian Taylor "Matilda" sessions the track was given some electro resonance, Gillian Wood's strings added a lushness. The band's Kidkanevil sculpted the arrangement into the climactic piece we release today.

The EP comes with the type of progressive electronic mixes we have come to expect from Stateless courtesy of Blue Daisy and new Ninja signee Slugabed as well as a wholly new track, "Blue Fire, featuring the ghostly vocals of Amenta and a beautifully restrained string quartet reworking of the band's classic Bloodstream by the ultra talented Daniel Keane (myspace.com/dannykeanemusic). This EP is packed with emotional depth, gaunt, at times other worldly, but always Stateless.

Stateless are to set to perform their biggest show yet in the esteemed Union Chapel alongside the Balanescu Quartet on Friday 16th September.

"Spans Muse-style histrionics, orchestral waltzes, R&B jams and shuddering dubstep beats." Uncut 4/5
"A seamlessly crafted record boasting lofty vision... Top class." Future Music 9/10
"Even more epic second time round. Stunningly effective." Music Week
"Hopscotching from arrhythmic electronica to brutal Dj Shadow-style sonic assault and back again,... Stateless have arrived somewhere they can call home." Mojo 4/5
"A winning combo." Artrocker
"An evolutionary leap." Q
"With their acute attention to detail in both production and songwriting it's no surprise they are one of Dj Shadow's favourite bands." DJ
