The Go! Team - Get Up Sequences Part One

The Go! Team today share new single and video World Remember Me Now (radio premiered on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6 Music breakfast show) taken from their newly announced album Get Up Sequences Part One set to be released via Memphis Industries on 2 July 2021.

“World Remember Me Now” is about feeling forgotten in the modern world. From The opening alarm clock the lyrics take the structure of a day in the life of a woman in a big city: “Pour the Orange Juice and Check the Post, Flip the Calendar and Pop the Toast”. “I’ve always been interested in people’s daily routines - what people do all day” says Go! Team songwriter Ian Parton. “It was written ages ago but has become strangely relevant to the world now. It’s easy to feel forgotten at the moment”. Vocals on the song are taken by Go! Team frontwoman Ninja and members of The Kansas City Girls Choir.

On ‘Get Up Sequences Part One’ the Team (Ian, Ninja, Nia, Simone, Sam and Adam) have created a musical world distinctly of their own making. A place where routine is outlawed and perfection is the enemy. Where Ennio Morricone meets the Monkees armed with flutes, glockenspiels, steel drums and a badass analogue attitude. We’re talking widescreen, four-track, channel hopping sounds that are instantly recognisable.

The recording of the album was a tough process for main man Ian Parton as he elaborates:

“I lost hearing in my right ear halfway during the making of this record. I woke up one Thursday in October 2019 and my hearing was different in some way - it fluctuated over a few weeks and at one point everything sounded like a Dalek. I seem to remember listening to music was bordering on unbearable. Over time it settled into just a tiny bit of hi end being audible on my right side. I thought the hearing loss was from playing music too loud over the years but it turns out I was just unlucky and it was a rare condition called Menieres. It was traumatic to keep listening to songs i knew well but which suddenly sounded different and it was an odd juxtaposition to listen to upbeat music when I was on such a downer. The trauma of losing my hearing gave the music a different dimension for me and It transformed the album into more of a life raft.”

Kommt noch 'ne Rezi? Unfassbar, dass es die schon mehr als 20 Jahre gibt. So eine flummiballmäßige Energie will ich auch haben.

Die flummiballmäßige Energie ist genau mein Problem mit der Band.
Auf Albumlänge wird es dann doch etwas anstrengend. Für einzelne Songs aber immer mal gerne.
