The mark the announcement the band have shared a visualiser for “Spell (Live at Cafe Oto)”.

Commenting on the album, which was recorded at Cafe Oto in May, Modern Nature frontman Jack Cooper says: “I’ve never really understood the point of view that certain records cannot be performed live or rather why simply replicating an album would be anyone’s intention. Island Of Noise was recorded by a cast of ten musicians, but the most exciting aspect of performing the songs on tour was how four people would interpret the music. To me, the most successful element of the studio album is the space and economy, so the four of us decided to focus on that aspect and to leave large sections of the songs open and free. These recordings are taken from the second night of our residency at Cafe Oto and brought the Island Of Noise album full circle. It was here a few years before that I’d seen an Evan Parker and John Edwards performance that sent me down a rabbit hole.”
