The Internet was a buzz with the recent announcement from Disclosure that their second LP will be released this September, and is named after “an incredible wild cat” called a Caracal. Praise and adoration poured in from across the world, but not everyone was pleased about the news.
Now, fellow UK electro maestro SBTRKT has called out the brother duo, calling them “wild copycats” in a series of tweets by himself and his art director, highlighting some pretty coincidental similarities. “first lp mask theme. Second lp. anonymous cat theme. Wildfire meant wildlife tribal theme – Hold on,” was the tweet from SBTRKT, real name Aaron Jerome, whilst art director A Hidden Place was a little more angry, tweeting “used to think they were really cute wanting to be like Sbtrkt. But whats up w/ going from face to mythical creature”
Imitation IS the greatest form of flattery, but is it too much to put down to coincidence? Check the tweets below to decide for yourself:
