The Comet Is Comingimpulse!
Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery
Released: 12th April 2019
On Trust In The Life Force Of The Deep Mystery, the Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted futurist jazz voyagers The Comet Is Coming are making music for these crisis times of chaos and mass meltdown. Drawing on the galactic vibes and spiritual consciousness of Alice Coltrane and Sun Ra, and combining this with the transcendent electronica of artists such as James Holden, The Comet Is Coming have created a multi-faceted, cyberpunk version of jazz rock that feels both ultra-modern and strangely timeless.
The title of the album, the band say, concerns “finding meaning in that which you cannot grasp”, it considers “truth in the existence of a primordial energy”. It asks “What does it mean to be human? The music on the trio’s second record fluctuates between pulsating, danceable, electronic groove-centric pieces and quieter, melodic jazz-infused compositions.
The Comet Is Coming are: Danalogue (keyboards/electronics), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone).
