The Comet Is Coming – “CODE”

The Comet Is Coming – “CODE”

The Comet Is Coming — the London-based jazz-rock/rave trio comprising Danalogue (Dan Leavers), Shabaka (Shabaka Hutchings), and Betamax (Max Hallett) — are announcing their fourth studio album, Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam, out September 23. This follows 2019’s The Afterlife. Along with the announcement is a mind-bending lead single and visualizer, “CODE.”

Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio, The Afterlife is produced by Danalogue and Betamax. “CODE,” meanwhile, smacks you in the face with a propulsive club beat, stabbing horns, and trance synths, among other otherworldly sound effects. Get lost below.
