Martin Gore – The Third Chimpanzee
Martin Gore, a founding member and main songwriter of the legendary band Depeche Mode, presents an EP of all-new, modular sounds, developing his long-running relationship with electronic music. The Third Chimpanzee is a powerful combination of tipsy grooves, unhinged, siren-like synth work and bludgeoning sound design. It’s euphoric in the way Depeche Mode can be, but rooted in a parallel love for electronic experimentation (which Gore has explored under his own name and in VCMG). The collision of these two worlds on The Third Chimpanzee finds Gore at his explosive best.
