Alt-J Δ – ‘Tessellate’

Despite the appallingly pretentious name (come on guys) this track is sterling. An inventive mash of bluesy vocals and incongruous melodies, Tessellate reverberates eccentrically through its 3minutes and 18seconds.  A stuttering beat is laid across a simplified backing of atmospheric tension, whilst ambiguous lyrics litter the track effervescently.

A layered masterpiece that loops and flays with a determination that sounds simultaneously buoyant yet nonchalant. Check it.

Words Claire Davies.
