Below, check out the Douglas Hart and Steve Mackey–directed video for their first single “Down,” which heavily samples Universal Togetherness Band’s “More Than Enough.”

The album features contributions Cadence Weapon, Soulwax, and Lou Hayter. “We were living through a period where it was very easy to feel like people were losing control of their lives in different ways,” Joe Goddard said. “There’s a darkness that runs through a lot of those tracks.”
