  • Orbital Drop Hypnotic Single, “Ringa Ringa (The Old Pandemic Folk Song)” ft. The Mediaeval Baebes [London Records]


    Leave it to the legendary brotherly duo, Orbital, to flip an old nursery rhyme into a hypnotic club ready track. They recently announced their 10th album ‘Optical Delusion’, due mid February, and paired the announcement with their sizzling techno-punk single, “Dirty Rat” with Sleaford Mods.

    Now, the boys are back, this time linking up with noteworthy UK musical ensemble The Mediaeval Baebes for “Ringa Ringa (The Old Pandemic Folk Song)“. It’s a chugging, cyclical Orbital groove that locks you in wonderfully, as The Mediaeval Baebes sing ‘Ring O’Roses’, the innocent nursery rhyme whose roots are in the Black Death.

    Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll says “it was a track made in the pandemic and I felt a real pull to use the vocal from Ring O’Roses, the original pandemic song from the Middle Ages. It made me feel a connection with all those who suffered before without the help of our modern technology. The music reflects the modern world while The Mediaeval Baebes vocals take us back to the times it has happened before, an old song becomes relevant again.

    It’s perfectly unique, another gem in Orbital’s timeless catalogue.
