Disclosure Caracal on 2LP
Disclosure is Guy and Howard Lawrence, two brothers from the UK making house/future music. The duo's long awaited second studio album, Caracal, home to the previously released hit singles "Holding On," feat. Gregory Porter "Omen," feat. Sam Smith and "Jaded," has finally arrived! Its name refers to a desert lynx, playing on the notion of being "completely unique" with no comparison to the everyday crowd.
Caracal is a muscular and nuanced record, with a depth to it that will pin it to the canon of dance music history. It's crunchy and gets under your skin. A proper album album, you might say. "We feel like a band now, instead of just releasing tracks for the club. We wanted to really step out with a solid body of work and tour for two years. We're very much an album band," says Howard.
However, Disclosure is still doing what they do best – taking house and giving it a massive injection of musicality – but there's a renewed depth and skill to this latest work. It's not just musicality. It's songwriting in its classic form. The pace across Caracal is generally slowed down. "With dance and electronica, your genre is defined by a BPM. As Disclosure we want to be known sonically, for our sound. We want to go through a variety of speeds and even genres and focus on mix and production," adds Guy.
