Alt-J’s New Song ‘3WW’
Last Friday, the band ‘Alt-J’ teased fans with a snippet of their new song. Finally, the entire track is out. Its unique sound has created anticipation for their new album, ‘Relaxer.’ Their incredible last album, ‘This is all yours,’ will potentially be matched after hearing a song like this.
Alt-J is known for their unique sound and the new song ‘3WW’ embraces exactly that, with melodies unlike any other. The song starts with a mysterious tone that builds with ease yet provides anticipation for what comes next. Slowly, the song transitions to angelic-like voices and strums of three types of guitars. As piano keys dance in the background, the pace of the song smoothly increases and it is impossible to stop listening.
‘3WW’ is a pleasant surprise to say the least, but the biggest surprise was the new voice in the song. Ellie Rowsell, of the band ‘Wolfe Alice,’ is a perfect addition to the song and band. We are hoping that Rowsell will be featured on more songs on the new album.
The names of more songs on the album were also released.
- In Cold Blood
- House of the Rising Sun
- Hit Me Like That Snare
- Last Year
The album will officially come out on June 9 on Canvasback Music, so the wait is almost over. With a song like this, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for ‘Alt-J’ and are thrilled to hear the rest of the album.
The band will be on tour for Summer 2017, as well. This tour will include festivals like Lollapalooza Paris and the Panorama Festival in New York City. They will be in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on August 9, so make sure to purchase tickets soon.
‘3WW’ dipped our toes in the water, but it will be exciting to see the finished product of ‘Relaxer.’ Until the album is finally released, this song will definitely be on repeat.
