The Go! Team are a six-piece band from Brighton, England. They combine indie rock and garage rock with a mixture of blaxploitation and Bollywoodsoundtracks, double Dutch chants, old school hip hop and distorted guitars. Their songs are a mix of live instrumentation and samples from various sources. The band’s vocals vary between performances: while live vocals are handled mostly by Ninja (with Angela Mak also singing some solos), vocals on record also feature sampled and guest voices.
Ian Parton conceived the project after wanting to create music incorporating Sonic Youth-style guitars, double Dutch chants, Bollywood soundtracks, old school hip hop and electro.
These ideas led towards the recording of Thunder, Lightning, Strike in his parents’ kitchen and released in the UK and Europe on the Memphis Industries label in September 2004, to widespread critical acclaim. The album was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2005.
On 18 December 2014, The Go! Team officially announced their return by uploading a “trailer” for their new album. The trailer features the songs from the short promos that were uploaded earlier in 2014, as well as other new material. On 6 January 2015, the title and tracklist were announced. The Scene Between was released on March 25, 2015.
