Imperial Daze have always wanted to do things on their own terms, at their own speed.
Founding their own studio AudioCommune, the band found a degree of independence, producing material that enabled their own aesthetic.
Invited to score a television advert, Imperial Daze used the funds to upgrade, kitting out the The Electric Eel Recording studio - in a freezer a previously used to store eels, just by the Tower Bridge area of London.
New single 'Man Out Of Myself' emerges from this space, and it's a confident, dreamy return, all soft edges, subtle hues, and intricate lyricism.
There's a sense of the band really finding themselves, a highly individual, completely engrossing return that adds new ideas to their palette.
We've got first play of the full video for 'Man Out Of Myself' and it's a real pearl - tune in below.
Catch Imperial Daze at London's Waiting Room tonight (November 7th).
