Single Review – Alt-J – Left Hand Free


Following up on the wonderfully odd and distancing ‘Hunger of the Pine’ as they continue the build up to their new album This is all yours; Alt-J return with another track off the album with ‘Left Hand Free’. It’s a song featuring a jangling and loose riff filtered out through a slightly faded and distorted production and recording to evoke a classic feel to it. The laid back and easy guitar charged track is complemented by flashing synths as they cascade across the guitar’s drone. Make what you want of the lyrics. They’re hardly holding much meaning within them but not every track is. Not as strong or as bold at ‘Hunger of the Pine’, but a track showcasing their dynamism and studio ability.
