On Floating Bodies doesn’t shift the template much but it does refine it, the song structures more pronounced and the rhythms less abstracted, more memorable but just as enigmatic: it's a striking illustration of how easily stunning artists can fall far below the radar, lost beneath the indieboy clamour and the bubbled-up hype and the frenzied scrums chasing whatever’s screaming loudest. »

Conquering Animal Sound release their second album 'On Floating Bodies' through Chemikal Underground.
Poetic, illusive. Machine-like, organic. Mysterious, pop. Conquering Animal Sound emerged from a Glasgow recording studio back in 2011 clutching their debut album, and 'Kammerspiel' quickly went on to enchant anyone who encountered it. Not that anyone figured it out. A beautifully complex work, the album matches bizarre, off kilter electronics with a fluid sense of melody that seemed to glue the disparate elements together. Now the band have completed a follow up. A bit like Bjork singing along to a classic Gameboy soundtrack, there's a playfulness at work here which belies Conquering Animal Sound's ferociously intelligent nature.
