alt-J’s Thom Sonny Green Drops Stunning New Track
'Phoenix' is from the forthcoming 'High Anxiety' LP.
Made over two years on the road while Green worked his day job as drummer for alt-J, High Anxiety is a diverse 21-track collection of warm and experimental cuts. Emotionally driven, the album strides confidently through a wave of styles, from bass-heavy beat-scene outings to floating ambience, all the while retaining a coherent whole—which undoubtedly points to the personal nature of the album.
The latest single to emerge from the record is “Phoenix,” a gorgeous, melancholic, and poignant piece of ambient bliss. Alongside previously released album cut “Vienna,” it paints a perfect picture of the breadth of the album and Green’s repertoire.
