On the hottest day of the entire history of the whole world, we sat in Tompkins Square Park in New York City with Simian Mobile Disco. They were in the US for three brief appearances, one in Denver, one in Chicago at Lollapalooza and one at Brooklyn's waterfront. Just before they got on a plane over the Atlantic, we spoke with them about their new album, Temporary Pleasure (now pushed back to September), its ample guest vocalists and its Kylie Minogue vibes (which is, we promise, a good thing). Surprisingly, they also sung New York's dancefloor praises, though it seems we can't hold much of a candle to UK gay clubs.
