Alt-J - 3WW

It's not a secret that I am in love with Alt-J since the first time I listened to them. From that first time, many fundamental things have changed for the band. My favorite member, Gwil Sainsbury, left the band in 2014 and their second album "This is All Yours" was completely different from their debut album "An Awesome Wave". Of course, this is not unexpected considering the band's name Alt-J, which stands for the greek letter Δ, that in Maths is the symbol of change. After the tour of "This is All Yours", the band took a big break and they came back today with this post on their facebook page "We'd like to thank you for your patience over the last year or so. After finishing touring 'This Is All Yours' in December 2015 we took a long break. Thom released a solo album; Gus opened a restaurant; Joe has been watching a lot of films. We hadn't set a time limit on our time off but by August 2016 we were ready to get back into the studio. The result is our third album, RELAXER, and we are really excited for you to hear it." Until June, you can have a listen to their single "3WW".
You can only decide if you like it or not... ;)


Alt-J - 3WW

There was a wayward lad
Stepped out one morning
The ground to be his bed
The sky his awning

Neon, neon, neon
A blue neon lamp in a midnight country field
Can't surround so you lean on, lean on
So much your heart's become fond of this

Oh, these three worn words
Oh, let me whisper like the rubbing hands
Of tourists in Verona
I just want to love you in my own language

Well, that smell of sex
Good like burning wood
The wayward lad laid clean
To two busty girls from Hornsea
Who left a note in black ink

Girls from above say "Hi" (hi)
The road erodes at five feet per year
Around England's east coastline
Was this your first time?
Love is just a button we press
Last night by the campfire

[Chorus: Joe Newman + Ellie Rowsell]
Oh, these three worn words
Oh, that we whisper like the rubbing hands
Of tourists in Verona
I just want to love you in my own language
