Published Aug 13, 2014Though they've found few fans in the critical community, British performers Alt-J have amassed a huge, worldwide fanbase. With that in mind, there are surely a great deal of people excited about their new song "Every Other Freckle."
The three-and-a-half-minute song opens with multipart harmonies and pummelling drums. Though it sounds like it's building to something, it offers up a strange groove complete with Mumford-esque "hey!" calls, Black Keys blues grooves and bizarre, experimental arrangements.
Lyrically, the song's got some pretty wild sex talk — the frontman says he wants to "turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet," among many other things. We're blushing.
Listen to "Every Other Freckle" below. Alt-J's This Is All Yours arrives on September 22 through Canvasback/Infectious Music.
