Full of hypnotic grooves and loose, smooth melodies, Morcheeba's blissed out trip-hop lived up to the band's dreamy name, gently lulling listeners into sonic highs and hazy moods. Formed by DJ/producer brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey and soul singer Skye Edwards in London in the mid 1990s, the band's languid loop of a debut single “Trigger Hippie” made the band cult favourites before their second album Big Calm (1998) produced the track “The Sea” which was later used as the theme tune to Channel 4 series Shipwrecked. Adopting a more pop sound, third album Fragments and Freedom (2000) peaked at Number 6 in the UK charts with the single “Charango” (2002) making it to Number 7 and reaching gold status. Edwards left the band in 2003 and was replaced by the Noonday Underground's Daisey Martey, but she returned for 2010’s “Blood Like Lemonade”. Head Up High followed in 2013 along with a tour of Australia. In 2014 Paul Godfrey left the band and the remaining two members announced a new acoustic project named Skye & Ross. The dup brought back the Morcheeba name for 2018’s Blaze Away, a top 10 album on the U.S. Dance chart, and in 2021 they issued Blackest Blue.
