Single Review – Alt J – Every Other Freckle

Alt-J

Alt J are back with a third single off their upcoming second studio album in This Is All Yours which is out on September 22nd. It already looks to be a rather promising album with a large amount of variety and introverted difference about it to make it sound fresh and adventurous. Their latest single ‘Every Other Freckle’ continues on this path and in may ways combines elements of their first two singles together in this one. The drawn out and long slung riffs combined with the intricate electronica and vocal harmonies. It occasionally fades into lone vocal segments and has a sustained buzz throughout, via the dub-like electronica. It fluctuates in every department. Some times the guitars are delicate and drawn out, at times distorted or even clean and wiry. The vocal unisons and structure also alter and move to the style of instrumentals being deployed. An odd song for sure, but another track that intrigues and keeps your undivided attention in an intimate and immersive way.
