"'All The Way Live' is just an all-out brass attack set to some pretty cheeky rapping," explains bandleader Ian Parton. 2Lots of the voices are sampled from a record made as a kinda afterschool hip-hop project by students of Carver Senior High, Chicago in 1983. We managed to track down the teacher behind the project - Mr. Harris - to clear it. It wasn’t really the fact it was old skool that attracted me but the personality and cheekiness that was jumping off the vinyl. It’s always about personality over perfection for me…"

"All The Way Live" is the third preview of Semicircle following "Mayday" and title-track-of-sorts "Semicircle Song".

The collective's new LP follows 2015 smash The Scene Between, and was laid down by a band comprising Parton, Simone Odaranile (drums), Angela 'Maki' Won-Yin Mak (vocals), Sam Dook (guitars), and rapper Ninja. Amber Arcades, and Lispector (plus more) contribute.

The Go! Team will play a string of UK shows in February - their first live dates in three years - including a headline stop at the Electric Ballroom in London. Find out more.
