Municipal Dances

Debut LP From Lukas Wooller (Maximo Park) and Matt Swinnerton (The Rakes).

With ‘Municipal Dances’, Karras have produced an accomplished debut straddling left field pop with accessible experimentation. The record shifts easily between upbeat electro, melancholic synths and driving motorik rhythm.

Lukas and Matthew first met in 2004 when their then unsigned bands (Maximo Park and The Rakes respectively) played a show together and became friends whilst on various tours and festivals until the Rakes disbanded in 2009. Some years later, when their paths crossed again at a gig in London, their conversation quickly returned to music-making and a discussion of influences beyond the ones for which they’d first become known. Chief among these influences was instrumental music: kraut rock and disco; post rock and kitsch; artists ranging from Roedelius, Daft Punk, Tortoise and Todd Terje.

“The idea of instrumental music attracted us as a challenge – to write music with a pop ethos, with hooks and catchy melodies but without the fall back of a vocalist”. Lukas Wooller.
