Today’s song is “Alien Days”, which is the first song off of their upcoming 3rd full length self-titled release (Coming out September 17th). It has a very slow beginning, in which a child voices slowly mixes into the voices of the band. But eventually the back beat of the song emerges, changing the feeling substantially, but not dropping all of the intention of the start of the song. It has a sound that isn’t too far from that found on Congratulations (in that it is mellow but with a very noticeable kick and snare), but also hints at a fun new sound and approach to their form of modern psychedelic rock, that the listener will indeed find on the rest of the album (stayed tuned for that!).
