Leeds-based outfit Living Body are gearing up to release their debut LP Body Is Working next week after three years of working together as a group. Ahead of the record's arrival, the group are giving listeners a taste of the full thing with a stream of the entire album. 

In addition to your typical group of rock instruments, tracks like "Choose" makes nice use of a french horn, trumpet, viola in its rich-sounding chorus sections, at times leaving singer Jeff T. Smith's voice alone to be backed by a steady rhythm section.

The band features Smith (formerly, Juffage) working with collaborators Katie Harkin (Sky Larkin, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Beasts) and Tom Evans of Vessels. The album was recorded by the band at Smith's home studio, marking his release since 2011's Semicircle

Body Is Working arrives on December 2 through Kingfisher Bluez/Barely Regal, and is available for pre-order here. Listen to the album in full below.
