Track of the week: Alt-J – 3WW

Alt-J have made a surprise comeback with their new single 3WW, and a new album Relaxer is due to be released in June.

The lengthy instrumental is as mysterious and cryptic as you would expect from the band’s unique sound. Despite how relaxing the intro may be, it doesn’t allow you to get too complacent whilst listening; the music dies down to allow vocals to burst into the track, and even features Ellie Rowsell – vocalist for Wolf Alice – singing almost as a response to the lyrics Joe Newman opens with. 

It is available to download now from iTunes or Spotify. It’s worth a listen if you love artistic music with bass heavily used, although, as a warning, the video may not be as enjoyable as the track if you suffer from epilepsy…
