'Blending motifs from kosmische, French house and ambient electronica into a selection of melodic, grooving tracks' – NARC.

'Bustling with kitschy disco and pulsing krautrock influences. Municipal Dances show that the gambit has paid off: the sound is joyous and fun and brightly-textured' – NORMAN RECORDS

The record has a loose narrative based on a day in the life of a modern city dweller, navigating their way around an urban environment, enacting the various behaviours unique to a metropolis in 2017. The cover design references a dance step guide, albeit in an abstracted form, rendered using the industrial flooring of the type used in public buildings and on public transport. In naming this new project, Matt and Lukas used a derivation of karass, a word originally attributed to Kurt Vonnegut who used it to describe a group of people linked in a cosmically significant manner, despite superficial linkages not being evident.
