Towards the end of 2006, three friends – Dave Okumu (Jade Fox, Matthew Herbert), Tom Herbert (Jade Fox, Polar Bear) and Leo Taylor (Gramme, Zongamin, Matthew Herbert) – started work on what was initially intended as Dave’s solo project. An exciting, beautiful album gradually emerged and during the process of its creation the three Londoners fused into a fully-fledged trio; The Invisible was born.
The band themselves say on their myspace ‘we’d be inclined to describe our music as ‘Experimental Genre-Spanning Spacepop’ if such a category existed.’
We’d never heard any ‘Experimental Genre-Spanning Spacepop’ before but we think we kind of like it.
‘London Girl’ is released as a single on March 9th, preceded by the album The Invisible on March 2nd.
