Jerome McCormick aka Imploded View is planning a new EP release next month. Entitled Coburn Days, it sees McCormick putting on his platform boots and making a beeline for the LED-coloured dancefloor. ‘Flutter Funk’ was uploaded to Soundcloud a couple of months ago and sees McCormick sidling onto the dancefloor’s fringes, but ‘There’s Nowhere’ sees him in a fully fledged dance-off. I asked my 80s-loving friend Pádie, who you can usually find on the dancefloor no matter the time of day, what he thought of ‘There’s Nowhere’ and his synopsis doesn’t disappoint: “It sounds like Homework-era Daft Punk being covered by Le Galaxie with a keyboard hook straight outta Chromeo’s back pocket.” Imploded View released a remix EP a while back, that might have pointed the direction down which he was heading, but the forthcoming EP sounds like a sexy new beast entirely. I asked him had things changed in the recording studio. He says: “Direction-wise, my way of recording hasn’t changed too much from the album, except for tempo and maybe mood I guess. This is certainly deliberate and it’s down to having played some live shows. I realised that the more uptempo numbers are so much more enjoyable to play. There’s usually a bit more of a reaction from the audience, and this increases my own enjoyment further. Then there’s the fact that I have a 14-month-old daughter Mia, who I’ve started running everything by. She prefers the uptempo numbers too.” Imploded View plays the Global Green area at Electric Picnic.
