If you happened to tune in for the Zane Lowe show on BBC Radio 1 today (10/14), you were lucky enough to get the first taste of The Go! Team’s latest offering, T.O.R.N.A.D.O. If not, lucky for you Mr. Lowe put the track up on his blog. (listen to T.O.R.N.A.D.O. below)
The track is the one the band have been opening with over the last few gigs. Lead vocalist (and one of the coolest person’s in music), Ninja, describes the track as “it’s a little faster, it’s not actually our first single, which will be coming soon…it’s back to the noise, the chaos, the lo-fi, the horns – it’s kind of inspired by The Taking of Pelham 123, that kind of soundtrack – it’s got a bit of that inside it. It’s kind of introducing us back – we’ve been away for a little while – this is us comin’ back.”
She could have described it as sounding like cats in heat and I would still want to listen to it. Titled Rolling Blackouts and set to be released Jan 31st, the new album will also feature Bethany Cosetino (Best Coast) and Satomi Matsuzaki (Deerhoof). Needless to say, I’m super excited about The Go! Team’s new album.
If you’re not familiar with The Go! Team (you should be!) head on over to the band’s official website and give’m a listen.
