We’re just a month away from the release of Battles third album, La Di Da Di. They gave fans a spectacular first glimpse of the new material earlier this month with a video featuring 4 new songs, recorded live in their rehearsal space in New York and directed by David Radboy. Battles have been a firm favourite of ours for a decade now and we’re thrilled to see they are back in full force as a trio.
Here’s the album’s accompanying blurb:
“As the name might imply, La Di Da Di is a mushrooming monolith of repetition. Here is an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genus of Battles is here as ever; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving – the gauntlet through which melody and harmony must pass, assailed at every turn.”
One of the tracks from their live session, the monumental opener ‘The Yabba’, is now being offered as the first single. Listen to it below and check out the live video straight after.
La Di Da Di is out on September 18th via Warp.
