One of the year's most anticipated returns, each new cut from alt-j simply raises expectations.
Last night (August 13th) Zane Lowe introduced something special. Stripped from the band's second album 'This Is All Yours', 'Every Other Freckle' is available to download now for anyone who takes out a pre-order.
It's a blissful, loved up return. alt-j are clearly in romantic mode, yet refuse to simply pen a straightforward love song. The structure zips and soars, following its own pattern, its own inimitable whims.
Joe Newman supplies one of his most supple vocal performances, slurring and sliding his way around the lyrics in an artful seduction.
Check it out now.
