alt-J is feeling good on “In Cold Blood”

alt-j 2

Not every band can make a series of 1’s and 0’s sound as cool as alt-J does. “In Cold Blood” sounds like an alt-J song — heavy base and experimental keyboards mixed with Joe Newman‘s enigmatic vocals — but when the chorus hits, it starts to give off a big band vibe. Brass and horns create a hook reminiscent of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”. This one is alt-J’s second single off their upcoming third studio album Relaxer, which drops June 2nd. Listen below.
