Out of the many, many things there are to like about alt-J, my favorite may be that they don’t sound like any other band I can name. They produce songs that are both catchy and musically creative, all the while being utterly original.
This song is the second single from their upcoming third album, RELAXER, now set for release on June 2. The first two singles are so solid, the release date has been pushed up a week — and deservedly so. This song has a killer chorus that I haven’t been able to get out of my head since I first heard it and I love how it grows in sound when the chorus gets repeated. Throw in an intense horn section and key change at the end and I’m hooked.
