Alt-J’s new track featuring Mountain Man, which premiered yesterday on Entertainment Weekly, gives listeners a new side to the recent Mercury Prize-awarded band.
Stripping away some of the instrumental complexities that we’ve heard on the band’s album, ‘Buffalo’ allows guitars and drums to lead most of the way while still focusing heavily on the use of voice as a primary instrument. The steady rise and fall of the music comes like waves and builds, almost eerily, to a beautiful and simple end.
The track features on the soundtrack to ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, which also includes new songs from Jessie J and Alabama Shakes. The album will be released via Sony Masterworks on November 19th and the film will be in theaters on November 21st.
