The Cinematic Orchestra
12 years after ‘ma fleur’, Jason swinscoe and dominic smith return with a stunning album of widescreen neo-classical jazz sumptuousness and a plethora of guest talents.
album contributions include collaborators old and new: Moses Sumney, Roots Manuva, Heidi Vogel, Grey Reverend (vocalist on Bonobo’s 'First Fires’), Dorian Concept and Tawiah (Mark Ronson, Kindness). In 2019, it’s easy to see the band’s influence. jazz is all around us. To Believe’s articulation of the band’s unique sonic language - encompassing not only jazz but the sort of transcendental orchestration combined with the elegant electronics of artists like Ólafur Arnalds and Floating Points; artists they have helped forge a path for - has never been more cohesive and compelling. “no-one else combines dignified grandeur and soulful romance so effectively” 8/10 – uncut.
