Orbital and Penelope Isles Team Up on New Song ‘Are You Alive?’

    Orbital have teamed up with Penelope Isles for ‘Are You Alive?’, which is taken from the veteran duo’s upcoming album Optical Delusion – out February 17. It follows lead single ‘Dirty Rat’, a collaboration with Sleaford Mods. Listen to both tracks below.

They took it away and Lily came up with some killer hooks, we spent a day rearranging the song and Hey Presto! Are You Alive was born. But don’t be fooled by the sweetness of the sound, the lyrics have some bite. It’s a dog-eat-dog world…”
