Battles - The Yabba - Track of the Day

After four years of waiting with tantalising anticipation, Warp Records’ finest glitchy math-rock exponents Battles are back.

With that in mind and the unveiling of the mind-bending new one ‘The Yabba’ all other contenders were frankly blown out of the water when it came to choosing this Friday’s Track of the Day.

This encapsulating intrumental is the first thing to have been shared from the upcoming album La Di Da Di, which thankfully lands as soon as next month.

The track switches from bombastic electronica to garage-rock wig-out in a heartbeat. To say it wets the appetite for a whole record of this euphoric madness is probably the biggest understatement we’ve made in a while.

Battles third album La Di Da Di will be released on September 18th via Warp Records.

Listen to ‘The Yabba’ below.
