Alt-J drummer Thom Sonny Green revealed in July that he’d be releasing his debut solo album High Anxiety on 19th August through his own label Sudden Records. High Anxiety sees Green revealing his love for cerebral, experimental electronica, something that you can only hear flashes of in the work of the slightly leftfield indie band.
Spanning an epic 21 tracks, many of the song titles referencing places and landscapes, reflective of how the album was pieced together over two years on the road. ‘Oslo’ doesn’t deviate from that formula. Like previously shared track ‘Phoenix,’ it has strong waves of synths, but also a driving melody that’s less spaced out and chilled than previous efforts. The song also morphs into almost an entirely different track halfway through, making it a thoroughly intriguing listen. Listen below.
