A bit of personal information for you – here at Breaking More Waves we like freckles. We also like Alt-J, but haven’t got round to posting anything from their new record until today, because as you probably all know there is TOO MUCH NEW MUSIC and our tiny filters / sieves can only deal with a tiny quantity of it.
But today we’re featuring the band and their new song Every Other Freckle, the first tune to mention freckles that we can remember since Kate Nash’s Mouthwash: “This is my face all covered in freckles.” It seems that these links go further than just freckles as well – mouths are involved in both songs as well: “I want to share your mouthful,” sing Alt-J in the opening line of this one before setting off on a road that if you were a fan of the first album you will undoubtedly love – it’s a journey with seemingly no map (or at least a map made up of hundreds of pieces of other maps stuck together) soundtracked by bonkers instrumentation that we can only assume must have been a hell of a lot of fun to create.
The album This Is All Yours from which the song is taken is released on September 22nd.
