Four days ago, English electronic music duo Disclosure Instagrammed a mysterious mural in New York's Lower East Side (98 Rivington Street next to Galli's new location), which was painted by Roman Grandinetti of CNNCTD. The band chose five alphanumeric codes to go alongside their portrait, which have so far stumped fans.
We've gotten the scoop on what these phrases really mean to Disclosure, who have had massive global success since their album Settle came out in June 2013. They recently reworked Pharrell ft. Jay Z's "Frontin,'" had Mary J. Blige sing on their hit "F For You," and got Vic Mensa to rap on "When a Fire Starts to Burn." Additionally, their single "Latch" is currently #3 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
Here's the rundown...
48207: The zip code of Detroit, home to J Dilla, one of Disclosure's early musical inspirations
RH20SD: Postcode in Surrey, England of Reigate College, the tech school attended by Guy and Howard of Disclosure
11211: The zip code of Williamsburg, home to Glasslands, which was the first venue Disclosure ever played in New York City
EC1Y7GD: The postcode of Timber Street Studios in London, where "Latch" was co-written with Jimmy Napes and Sam Smith
769,346: Total sales to date of "Latch"
