In support of their new album, Relaxer, Alt-J will be touring North America this fall including a stop in Vancouver.
This is the third studio album for the English indie rock band. he teaser for opening track '3WW' was written in binary code and they launched a website inspired by a cult '90s PlayStation game. But there's so much more going on than insular geekdom. Take lead single 'In Cold Blood' as an example – there are horns and threatening guitar lines undercut with punitively reassuring but actually quite threatening "la la la" chants. 'House Of The Rising Sun' is not so much a cover as a glorious turning inside out of the original, coupled with personal lyrics about a broken family. It's one of six tracks that features a 30-piece string section, an expansive leap from early Alt-J's signature hushed style.
