Song of Summer 2017
By: Douglas Jenkins
At WLFC we have been constantly growing our music library. For, me the summer indie song of 2017 has to go to “In Cold Blood” by Alt-J. For the majority of the summer, “In Cold Blood” has been in our Power Current standings, which you can find at the end of this article.
“In Cold Blood” contains cryptic lyrics that are very unique to the Alt-J style. The horns in the song create a certain level of drama and increase the dynamics to an already haunting song. The song has a pop sound but strays from what we typically hear in pop music.
If you are interested in bands like Glass Animals, Arcade Fire and Foster the People, the new Alt-J album is definitely worth checking out.
