Watch the new Orbital video for ‘Wonky’

The latest Orbital single, title track “Wonky,” (album out now) finds the Brothers Hartnoll venturing into electro-rap with some help from Birmingham-based grime MC Lady Leshurr.

The beat and synths are pure electro, but the overall aesthetic is very much Orbital, particularly in the song’s propulsive inertia and the way the synth notes sound as though they are being stretched. In the music video, a seemingly sober man begins to hallucinate singing cats as though he were on a hilarious though slightly disturbing psychedelic trip.
