Super Extra Bonus Party are about to release Night Horses, the follow up to their 2008 Choice Music Prize winning debut album.
SEBP visual collaborator and all round music expert nialler9 says "It’s a different beast to their debut for sure. Still as eclectic as ever; it takes in hip-hop, rock, folk, electronica and pop but more cohesively so, largely down to the fact that all seven members of the band worked on this one together where their debut was largely a result of four members. R.S.A.G. adds vocal and percussion to the bouncy synth and horns workout of ‘Who Are You And What Do You Want?’, Mr. Lif features on The Knife-esque epic electronica of ‘Thin Air’, Heathers do wonders on the sunny pop of ‘Comets’, ‘Do Incio Ao Fim’ with Rodrigo Teles is built on a great old-school hip-hop sample, May Kay of Fight Like Apes throws tantrums atop the rocking ‘Eamonn’, Ireland’s best native rapper Captain Moonlight’s lyrics are impressive on ‘Tea With Lord Haw Haw’ (In fact, the album has some real depth lyrically), Ann Scott helps out on the folktronica of ‘Sonora’ and there’s some surprisingly lush instrumentals towards the end."
‘Radar‘, the first single from Night Horses can be heard over on nialler9’s blog, and here they are performing ‘Tea With Lord Haw Haw‘ from the very same album on the tellybox, not with Lord Haw Haw but with the much more talented Captain Moonlight :
