It’s a great time to be an alt-J fan. The UK three-piece first turned heads in September when they announced their first new album in four years, The Dream, and dropped the inaugural single, “U&Me.” Today, they’re keeping the hype train rolling with the release of the latest single, “Hard Drive Gold.”
We love the way these guys constantly evolve their sound. This latest offering finds the trio delivering eccentric but low-key vocals over a percussion-heavy instrumental, while a chunky bassline and light guitar noodles keep your head bobbing.
Three singles, three different sounds. alt-J is on a roll. The group has mentioned that this project is some of their most experimental work to date and we’re loving the results so far. Stay tuned as we anxiously await the February 11 arrival of the group’s fourth album, The Dream. Until then, you can stream alt-J’s newest single, “Hard Drive Gold,” below. Enjoy!
